What inspired Cultivating Self?

"Cultivating Self came to exist out of a critical need for the mental health and overall wellbeing of caregivers to be prioritized and held within a supportive community space.

 

When we first show up for ourselves, we can joyfully show up in service to others. I now live by this philosophy and believe it to be true, but this has not always been the case. While easily understood on an intellectual level, this philosophy is not widely practiced in modern culture, so how are any of us to really know what it looks like to "show up" for ourselves? To take it further, many of us have become deeply rooted in systems that perpetuate and even reward the exploitation of workers (dictating how and when we care for ourselves), so why is "self-care" only the responsibility of an individual? 

 

Emerging from the current healthcare paradigm with an intimate understanding of the problems, Cultivating Self is bringing forth solidarity around actionable solutions that cultivate not only the Self, but the greater systemic change needed in healthcare."
