A 6-week cohort to create rhythms of care that deeply nourish yourself & your community
Self-Care is only as good as its contribution to your liberation
Watch the pre-program
Both Liberation and so-called "self-care" are very personal, based in our lived experiences, our ancestors, our positionalities and our dreams for our lives and our communities.
The self-care industry has failed. While the industry markets bubble baths and spa days, many of the pressures that impact our holistic wellbeing are systemic and beyond the individual. One of the biggest indicators of wellbeing, for example, is CONNECTION. Beyond this, we face multiple intersecting crises in our society that call many of us to action for our own liberation, yet simultaneously impact our wellbeing deeply on any given day... so, where's the balance?
As community care workers, leaders, visionaries and change makers, the care that sets us free may not be what we've been sold as "self-care."
This cohort will challenge us to unpack ideas around self-care and community-care, examine old patterns, and create rhythms of care that tend to all parts of ourselves without isolating into individuality or burnout.
This cohort is for you if you...
... are struggling with burnout and want to cultivate care rituals to uplift you
.... want to reconnect to and embody your most sacred values
... are yearning to feel more alive, so that you can show up to you work from a place of being deeply nourished.
... know that an individualistic approach to self-care is insufficient to create true holistic wellbeing in your life
... want to engage in care that is a part of your liberation
In this cohort we will...
Connect to care that is a part of your liberation
We are going to get really specific. After assessing where we're at in different areas of our lives, we will explore the challenges to co-creating wellbeing in those areas and get creative about new boundaries and rhythms to support our thriving in 2024.
Hold each other accountable to the care we need.
Did you take that mental health day?
Did you attend that protest that called your soul? Did you meal prep while singing naked in your socks? Each week we will check in to see how you are integrating your intentions for liberatory care.
Create life affirming rhythms.
You will leave this group with a Self-and-Community Care plan that integrates your needs for care with your needs for community connection and contribution in line with a renewed personal definition of personal and collective liberation.

Will this help me grow my business, organization or projects?
I need to make a living...
Care will inevitably have enhance your ability to connect to the work that truly nourishes you. While we recognize that business and financial success play a significant role in wellbeing, if you already know that is where you need to focus, go see the Rooted Vision Cultivator.
I come from a marginalized identity. Will there be people like me? Is this group safe for me?
This work is not just trauma-informed but sensitive to the complex dynamics of interpersonal, intergenerational and cultural trauma. Your main coach and facilitator moves with the sensitivity of a genderqueer Jewitch (pagan Jew) neurodivergent trauma survivor experience, shaped by years of diverse community work and study that have prepared them to hold this role. Generally speaking, we attract change makers from a diversity of backgrounds and experiences, but cannot guarantee the make-up of each group.
We hold the understanding that safety is something that is very individual to each person, and it is created in the container of connective relationships. All efforts will be made to create the conditions for this connective experience, including facilitating awareness in difficult moment to interrupt potential harm.
What if I can't afford the group? Are there scholarships?
Folks with marginalized identities, including low-income, and disabled folks may request a scholarship, please email email@example.com with your name and your request.
