Self-Care Retreat: For People of Asian Descent Half-day

Anna & Luana Online Retreat via Zoom Luana Long Annamma (Anna) Johns

Annamma (Anna) Johns and Luana Long

12/6/2020 12:30 PM - 4:30 PM (ET/U.S. and Canada)  at  Online Retreat via Zoom (Virtual) (Map It)

This online half-day workshop provides practitioners of Asian descent an opportunity to slow down, take deep breaths, and practice self-care together in community.

Acknowledging that feelings of separation and isolation are more easily touched due to the ongoing pandemic, anti-Asian discrimination, pressures from work, family, and the holidays, it is time to take a collective pause and practice caring for the sensitive being that is right here. Many of us so willingly give of ourselves to care for others. It is time to make that U-turn and direct the same love and compassion we have towards others onto caring for ourselves.

Through gently bearing witness to the changing conditions of our particular body-heart-mind, we can learn to let go of unnecessary burdens that keep us from realizing our true belonging.

In our time together, we will move and energize the body, practice relaxation and stillness, and validate each other’s lived experience through a relational practice.

All people of Asian descent are welcome.

Note: Because this is an online retreat, participants are encouraged to find space of relative quiet, limiting the amount of interaction with others in the environment as much as possible. Participants may join by internet or via phone. Participants will be given links to join the course the week before the course begins.

Participants will be given the Zoom link in the registration confirmation email.
