I am so glad I went to the first workshop on developing habits of care. I have been to so, so, so many self/community care workshops, and have facilitated some too. I am usually left feeling unsatisfied even if I was able vent and process my exhaustion.
This workshop was totally different; the activities Pampi led us in did not leave me in my feelings or to buying bath salts or uber rides home. I saw laid out really clearly the ways in which self care is about survival, about figuring out what resources my community has and how to access them so I can live and contribute to that community.
I’m grateful for all y’all, and Pampi especially. <3
