About the event

For those who dedicate their lives to making a positive impact on the world, self-care often falls to the bottom of a never-ending to-do list. When there is so much demanding our energy, prioritizing our own needs may feel foreign or even frivolous. However, just like athletes, astronauts or performers, our bodies and minds are our instruments, and they require proper care to ensure optimal performance- in our work and in our lives.

This participatory workshop will weave together creative arts, playful prompts and tools from transformational coaching that support deep reflection, collaboration and possibility. Together, we will take a look at the roadblocks and pitfalls of self-care and explore ways to avoid burnout, manage stress, keep a balanced life and create space for joy. We will also share self-care resources and strategies, and identify ways to create a nurturing and empowering environment at school, work and home! In addition, we will also enjoy some self-care-in-action, with time for relaxation and pampering!

Activities include:

Self-care compass: Identify signs, navigate roadblocks and forge alternate routes

Group sharing and 1-1 prompts for deeper exploration

Emotional first aid: Emergency response cards and self-care kits

Colouring and guided meditations

Self-care station: treat yourself!

This workshop is easily adaptable to the size and objectives of the group. The session will be facilitated by Aubrey Vora: explorer, catalyst and coach for transformation. In 2010, she found herself stretched to her physical breaking point, giving her the opportunity to re-imagine her future and re-assess her self-care practices. That’s when she began illustrating colouring pages - a personal meditation and ended up transforming life as she knew it. Over the years of colouring clubs, classroom visits, coaching sessions, and personal development workshops, Aubrey has seen the transformational power of creativity, imagination and play. She now coaches passionate individuals and groups as they exercise their creative muscles and develop the essential navigation skills that will support them in actualising a fulfilling, purpose-driven life.
