Being a feminist is no easy task. The judgment, the contradictions, and the helplessness of realizing so much is wrong with the world, frequently become an everyday struggle. However, gender equality & social justice are not things you can just stop believing in. Once you embrace these ideas, they become a part of your identity. So how do you find peace amidst this duality? In this workshop, we'll explore this question, and learn about the importance of putting well-being at the center of the search for liberation. The truth is, the feminist movement cannot thrive if each one of its members is not well. By the end, attendees will have practical tools to confront & hopefully overcome the feelings of desperateness & anxiety that often arise when leading feminist lives.
f you feel like feminism is repeatedly taking a toll on your serenity, but also know that giving up on your principles is not an option, this workshop is for you. If you’re open to exploring how a fresh take on feminism can help you achieve more joy and freedom, please come! Absolutely no previous knowledge or experience is necessary.
