Heal Yourself, Change the World: Social Justice Begins at Home!

A self-care workshop for activists.

Saturday, September 29th

1:30pm to 5:30pm

3464 Washington St., Jamaica Plain

This workshop, the first in a series, is designed for activists, artists, healers, change agents and YOU. You know how to revolutionize, but do you know how to refuel? We all deserve the respect and care that we are creating on behalf of others. The more present and whole we can be, the more effective we will be in our activist work. In a culture where productivity and profit are valued more than community and caring, self-care is a revolutionary act! We will learn ways to make self-care as important as our work through activities and collaborative discussion.

The workshop portion will last from 1:30 to 4pm. Following this, Jess Butler, LicAc, will be available for a community acupuncture session. For more information about community acupuncture, see
