How about some movement? Creative storytelling? Community play? It’s important that physical isolation doesn’t turn into social isolation. Self-Care is VITAL during this time of crisis. Join authors and dancing social workers Sheila K Collins, PhD and Christine Gautreaux, MSW Join us LIVE on-line using zoom (a free easy to use program) on the theme of Radical Self-care. Authors of the book, Stillpoint: A Playbook for Caregivers to Find Ease, Time to Breathe and Reclaim Joy know that in these trying times, as we take care of others, it’s especially important to take very good care of ourselves. The duo use tools from the system of InterPlay - an active, improvisational, creative approach to unlocking the wisdom of the body. InterPlay is a social movement dedicated to enabling ease and balance in human relationships across cultures and between people of different generations and backgrounds. They will use principles from their book along with the simple, anyone-can-do-them InterPlay forms of movement, storytelling, song, and stillness. We’ll connect with our own creative inner wisdom, share snippets of stories with one another, and collaborate on behalf of who and what we love.
