Self Care Toolkit

- 8:00pm
Mardi Décembre 2 2014

Venue: South House
Address: 6286 South Street
Cost: Free / swap - registration required

» More information

Come swap self care tips for the colder months and build self care toolkits full of ways you can spoil yourself. The workshop will be a potluck style swap, bring things, recipes, or ideas that help you feel safe and happy in the winter months to share with the folks in attendance. In the words of the incredible Audre Lorde “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” Please bring a container/ envelope you want to store your toolkit in. Looking forward to see you folks there!

Bring one of the following:
e.g. a package of your favourite tea or a playlist
self care ideas you want to swap
self care methods for the winter months
