11-04-20 How to Make a Difference as an Antiracist and an Ally Without Burning Yourself Out or Destroying Relationships – with Rebecca Eldredge, PhD
November’s theme is Gratitude & Grace. Gratitude is always important, but it is especially so during difficult times. Right now, everything is difficult! Join me every Wednesday, all November long, and learn exactly what to do to make yourself feel better, look better, and find the peace you crave, so you can enjoy the holidays – maybe even more than you have before!
Watching, listening, or reading the news can be extraordinarily stressful. Especially now, during the elections cycle, where everything you read, say, or hear is somehow politically or racially charged! What’s a person to do? You want to do the right thing and live in alignment with your values. You want to fight for underserved or disadvantaged populations and make a difference. But you also want to maintain your sanity and preserve important relationships. YES! It is possible, and Rebecca will show you how.
- Feel calm, hopeful, and empowered even during chaotic times.
- Guide and navigate tense interactions and differences with those you care about.
- Advocate for the rights of others and stand up for your values with courage in a way that is comfortable for you.
- Care effectively for yourself, while caring effectively for others!
