The Revolution Starts with Me: Recipes, Remedies, Rituals and Resources for Activist Self Care

Newly revised for 2017, this session brings together new and seasoned activists who are dedicated to making community and societal change, AND who are faced with the too-real task of balancing the demands of families, peers, and communities. We are committed to creating a balance between advocating for others and taking care of ourselves. But how do we prioritize self care when we’re being pulled in multiple directions? And what can we do when self care doesn’t feel like an option? Through collaborative activities, storytelling, and skill-sharing, we will examine the effects of burnout at the individual, community, institutional, systemic, and generational levels. You will develop a personalized “Recipes, Remedies, Rituals, and Resources”, and you’ll receive the 2017 "The Revolution Starts with Me: Recipes, Remedies, Rituals, and Resources”, a self care zine with tools, exercises, and advice from the presenters.
