"You can't pour from an empty cup." If It seems counterintuitive to spend time nurturing and connecting to yourself, when there is so much need for action out in the world. The question is, "What would it be possible to do, if you felt fully nourished, abundantly resourced and grounded?" Less burnout – More effective actions and empowerment for social change.

We are creating a community that will be intentional about self-care in a way that has integrity with our values, and that sustains us for the long haul. If you’re involved in social change or service work in some way, if you feel depleted and you’re interested in developing deepening practices of self-care, we invite you to join us.

We firmly believe that good self-care isn’t a luxury, and so a self-care program shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg. We’re charging enough to be able to provide an honorarium to our facilitators, and to cover a few basic program expenses. If this cost is still prohibitive to you, we’d be happy to chat about paying in installments, or offering some sort of contribution to the learning or other ways to contribute. If you want to be part of the program, we want you to be there. Let us know your needs.
