Update: Rescheduled Date and Information for Session 2

Session 2 with Billy Brookshire

June 23, 2021, 4:30–6:00 pm EDT

“Taking Care of Ourselves:

Helping Ourselves So We Can Help Others”

June 23, 2021, 4:30–6:00 pm EDT

To take care of ourselves personally and professionally, it is important to make space in our lives to “just be,” to identify self-nurturing activities, and to make use of comfortable minutes. In the time we spend together in this workshop, we’ll explore options to help us take better care of ourselves. The good news is that these activities are not difficult, expensive, or time consuming. They can even be shared with your students and clients and with their families!
