AS+T Summer Self-Preservation Series: Cultivating Nourishing Rituals

Wednesday, June 12, 2024 | 2:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Self-preservation refers to a set of behaviors adopted to protect ourselves and maintain personal wellbeing, stemming from an understanding that protecting our physical, emotional, and psychological health is a prerequisite for doing our best work for our students and one another. As staff providing direct support to students with a wide range of lived experiences, it is especially important to curate an approach to self-preservation that fits into our busy lives so that we can fill our own cups before pouring ourselves out for others. This workshop is #2 of a five-part experiential workshop series focused on exploring a variety of tools, practices, and resources that support our wellbeing at and beyond work.

"Rituals" are a set of repeated behaviors or actions performed at a set time and/or place, and have proven benefits for anxiety reduction when cultivated and performed with purpose. In this session, we will explore and share ideas for cultivating personalized rituals to bookend the work day while nourishing ourselves physically, emotionally, and psychologically.
