Introduction to Accessible Self-Care for Nonprofit Professionals

Tuesday, September 14, 06:00 PM - Tuesday, September 14, 2021, 08:00 PM

Fee: Free
Take care of yourself. It’s a sentiment with kind intent, and it can also be hard, even frustrating, to hear. The plain truth is that sometimes “being told” to take care of yourself can feel like yet another external pressure. 

Many within nonprofits are asking how they can integrate sustained and effective self-care approaches into their life and work when the addition of one more thing feels impossible. 

Camille Cyprian, founder and healer in residence of Center Spaces, is skilled at empowering people to build their capacity around self-care in accessible ways that center a balance between self and community so that the practice itself is not done in isolation. She says, “I find that doing care work in and with community is healing at its most powerful.” 

Join Camille for a free, two-hour workshop that will introduce you to her approach and give insight into her multi-week Mind, Body, Service Groups which she will offer in partnership with MCN in 2022. 

Throughout the workshop, you will:
  • Learn scientific and emotional components of self-care 
  • Gain insight into developing personalized tools for incorporating self-care into your work and life and more healthily navigating change 
  • Begin to understand how mind, body, and justice work intersect 
  • Build skills and community
