In these challenging times, as we take care of others, it’s particularly important to take especially good care of ourselves. Whether you are a professional or family caregiver, or both, it’s critical that, for you, social distancing doesn’t turn into social isolation.
How about some movement? Creative storytelling? Community play?
Join authors and dancing social workers Sheila K Collins, Ph.D. and Christine Gautreaux, MSW as they share wisdom from their book Stillpoint: A Playbook for Caregivers to Find Ease, Time to Breathe, and Reclaim Joy. The duo use art-based tools from the system of InterPlay - an active, improvisational, creative approach to unlocking the wisdom of the body.
A social movement, InterPlay is dedicated to enabling ease and balance in human relationships across cultures and between people of different generations and backgrounds.
Event participants will learn and practice the five skills of self-care, connect with one another through snippets of their own life stories, share creative wisdom and inspiration, and collaborate on behalf of who and what they love.
