Emerging from Quarantine: Reimagining “Normal” Life [Online]
In the wake of this past year, our paradigms for normalcy are now reimagined as we reenter the world…and redefine it.
Join 2021 commencement speaker Esther Boykin for a workshop that will provide time and space for exploring ways we can practice self-compassion as we move toward a new chapter.
This workshop will have you take a deep look within yourself to see where you stand in the emotional fog, help you own your current narrative, identify new layers of acceptance and self-care, and find ways for connectivity that you can fall back upon as you emerge from quarantine.
This workshop is free and open to the public.
