As the year is quickly coming to an end and the holiday season is rapidly approaching, it is easy to forget ourselves. To prioritize our own self-care, we need access to time, resources and a community that nurtures. So, we're bringing back a smaller version of our retired retreats, a special meet-up for you, featuring entirely wellness vendors, self-care storytelling and DIY activities. Whether you choose to color, meditate or buy something special for yourself — come out and connect or disconnect. Tickets are $5 to cover event production costs (and do not cover fees from vendors with products/services for purchase). The event will run from 1 to 4 PM on November 18, 2017 at Space 24 Twenty.
SCHEDULE OF EVENTS:
Working on a project? Got some knitting to catch up on? Need to bead some jewelry? Bring your work. We'll have dedicated tables for you to hustle on your craft, while you mingle and meet with other women-identifying folk in the Austin community.
At 1:30 PM, join Melanie Host-Collins of Grow Your Love Space for a donation-based guided meditation. Please bring a towel or mat to comfortably participate.
At 2:30 PM, we'll present a curated selection of announcements, featuring self-care service providers in the Austin community, as well as gems and tidbits from you (yes, you! submit to announce at the hyperlink) about low-cost and affordable wellness options, routines and rituals.
