Radical Self-Care with Dr. Joi

We will follow up this event with restorative yoga sessions with Marjorie D. Grevious the next three Mondays (March 15, 22 and 29) to help care for your mind and body. Click to register for yoga sessions.

As the trial of Derek Chauvin begins, we invite the community to join together in a wellness and self-care event during this incredibly difficult time.

On Monday, March 8, we invite you to join Dr. Joi Lewis, who will speak on Radical Self-Care in Challenging Times. This session is a gift of time and space for us to take a big deep breath together in community. We will hold space to interrupt the effects of toxic stress and trauma. We will explore the practices of Radical Self-Care and being “awake” that can help create space for wellness through the four simple practices of the Orange Method of Healing Justice (Radical Self-Care + Social Justice): Meditation (Get Grounded), Mindfulness (Get Present), Emotional Liberation (Get Free) and Conscious Movement (Get Unstuck).  With such space, Dr. Joi believes we are better able to gain access to deeper connections with ourselves and others, as well obtain healthy expressions of grief, pain and joy.

Dr. Joi is a mediator, coach, community healer, social entrepreneur and facilitator of liberation locally, nationally and globally, and is on a mission to “put healing in the hands of anyone, anywhere.”

We will follow up this event with restorative yoga sessions with Marjorie D. Grevious the next three Mondays (March 15, 22 and 29) to help care for your mind and body. Click to register for yoga sessions.
