A day of self care and community healing.
Dedicated to all workers in the queer/trans (LGBTTQQIP2SA inclusive) communities. Queer Careposium provides an opportunity to acknowledge the self in the midst of community work, be it activism, social work, personal/health care, peer support work, or supporting local social events. The day is part personal rejuvenation, part celebration of our inherent skills and part exploration of perspectives on our participation and support systems in community involvement. The goal of this queerposium is to prevent burn-out and promote healthy engagement.
The line up:
Dancing for Wellbeing with Joanne Cuffe of Creative Momentum;
Superqueero Community Counsels: Skills and Strategies, a presentation and discussion with Robert Birch, PhD Student, Social Dimensions of Health, UVic.
Community Healing Discussion and Acupuncture Demonstration with Christina Chan of Heart and Hands Community Acupuncture Clinic, http://heartandhandscommunity.ca/testimonials/community-acu-group-building/
Safe Harbour – nurturing a sustainable base from which to live, love and change the world with Metta, a Registered Clinical Counsellor and member of the local trans community.
Throughout the day there will be speed friending and other community building exercises that promote cross-community engagement.
