The past few years have been challenging for all of us, often making us feel like we are simultaneously juggling chainsaws, flaming bowling balls, and Faberge eggs. With staff turnovers, economic uncertainty, and demands from stakeholders, we often forget to nurture our longest relationship: with ourselves.

During this interactive session, we will:

  • Discuss how focusing on resilience, authenticity and joy can guide us towards more meaningful lives.
  • Learn key practices for nurturing self-care.
  • Learn strategies to assist you with living a more integrated life.

The Learning Center of the Community Foundation of Elkhart County offers free training for those working with Elkhart County nonprofits or nonprofits serving Elkhart County.
