Title: Find Calm in Chaos: Radical Self-Care in Uncertain Times
Date: Tues., May 9th
For a variety of reasons, employees across the globe are feeling deep levels of burnout and languishing that, for many, has led to “quiet quitting” or literal quitting. We know that these challenges are often experienced even more acutely by BIPOC and non-majority employees, who exist within systems of oppression and who are often called on to do the work of dismantling those systems in more emotionally laborious ways. Given the increasing complexity of our work, as well as the emotional toll of the last handful of years, many Augsburg employees have expressed desire for opportunity for connection, engagement, and time to prioritize professional and personal care. This session, provided with the support of President Pribbenow and the Health and Well-Being Task Force, offers space for employees to take time out of the demand for productivity to intentionally focus on the health and well-being of ourselves as individuals within the Augsburg community.
From Dr. Lewis:
This session is a gift of time and space to take a deep breath together in community. We explore practices of Radical Self-Care and being “awake” that help create space for wellness, and thereby interrupt the effects of toxic stress and trauma, especially related to the world pandemic and racial injustice. By the end, participants connect with themselves and others more deeply and practice healthy expressions of grief, pain, and joy. Strengthening our foundations around radical self-care can help us all show up for ourselves, our loved ones and our community.
