Check out Micky's talk on faith and self care at the Self Care in Color Virtual Retreat!
In a world that tries daily to deny us of our humanity, we will spend a week reaffirming it. We each were born worthy of love, respect, care, time, and attention. Nothing that has happened to you, nothing that you have done, nothing you have survived in between your birth and today has diminished your worth. It cannot be taken from you or changed.
Self-Care In Color is a week-long online event created for Black women and femmes to learn about what self-care is and how it can be used to help us thrive. This is a safe and brave space for Black women and femmes to support each other, love each other, and learn from each other what it means to thrive. Our goal is not mere survival - we will reclaim our health and our joy.
Black women and femmes carry the emotional load for our community. We are the rock. We are the linchpin that holds everything together. And far too many of us are suffering. We give, we sacrifice, we create, we build, we work, and we do it all without asking for anything in return. That stops now. Our goal is to increase the health and wellness of our community and to give our sisters a place where it is safe to focus on our wants and needs. The Self-Care In Color Virtual Retreat will give us time every day to focus on what we need so that we can thrive instead of simply surviving.
The Virtual Retreat will take place right here from October 16 - 22. Each morning at 8am Eastern Time a new video presentation will go live. These presentations will focus on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health of Black women and femmes. AND IT IS TOTALLY FREE.
