Event Time and Date

Tuesday, July 11 2017, 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM
14 Days until this Event

This workshop will focus on why self care is so important to radical organizing. We will explore physical stretching, breathing techniques, mindfulness and meditation as tools to better understand ourselves and our physical, emotional and mental states, as well as discuss how self and community care are aspects of radical struggle.

By the end of the workshop, participants will have several different practical tools they can use on a regular basis, to help better manage stress and anxiety in the present, as well as process past events. The techniques we will go through can help us come to a better understanding and equilibrium with our internal selves.


Facilitator:
Cee/illogik (Chris Bowen) is a yoga teacher, physical and energetic healer, as well as one half of radical hip hop duo test their logik. Using many different mediums to explore radical transformation of our personal, inter-personal lives and community, he is dedicated to putting his different passions into use to serve the broader struggle.
