Our whole self enters every setting and role in our lives. Many of us though have been told or have learned to disconnect from parts of ourselves when we enter a particular setting, such as work or in a particular role, such as parent. Societal injustices and the COVID-19 pandemic have caused or magnified disconnection in many elements of people’s lives. When we are disconnected within, we feel imbalanced. This is what we really mean by “work-life balance” we are seeking to reconnect within so we can most effectively navigate the settings and roles of our lives. This session explores self-care as a priority and practice for connecting within so that we can positively and effectively navigate whatever arises around us.
