When busy, tired, burnout start settling into our everyday vocabulary and become too intimate friends, it may prove useful to take some time and space to breathe and observe just where you are amidst your narrative. The need to connect deeply to life is hardwired into each person, yet many of us still struggle to do so in the context of contemporary life. But what if there are different ways to allow the aliveness around life to feed our energy every day? How can we stay open to life as it wants to emerge within us? Could there be a way to break out of the patterns? Join a like-minded collective that engages in the process of exploring the possibilities of imprinting self-care in our lives and increasing the well-being of our communities.
