$35.00 BIPOC Fatigue: Just Me
$50.00 BIPOC Fatigue: Giving a Boost
$20.00 BIPOC Fatigue: Accepting a Boost
WE. ARE. TIRED.
WE. ARE. ANGRY.
WE. ARE. GRIEVING.
WE. ARE. HUMAN.
Everything we feel is okay.
But how do we cope when we are NOT okay?
How do we muster up the energy to keep showing up for antiracism work (being on DEI committees, answering questions from White folx, leading healing spaces) when we are drained? Can yoga be our refuge? A soft place to land when we crave rejuvenation and peace?
Let’s talk about it!
Join Dr. Monea for a Courageous Conversation about BlPOC Fatigue. We will discuss what it is, what’s underneath, and what we can do about it. This is not training so come prepared to engage and be vulnerable. This Courageous Conversation will uplift BIPOC voices and lived experiences.
This workshop is focused on helping our BIPOC sisters and brothers in the community navigate our reality. Our Non-BIPOC family is welcomed to listen, learn and support. But we must agree to keep the focus on BIPOC needs!
