Be Good to Yourself Whoever You Are: Workshop for Pain Awareness Week

Be Good to Yourself, Whoever You Are

Often in work, and in life, energy moves towards projects and people but there’s little left for your own restoration ­–– especially for those living with chronic pain. In this workshop, through the use of poems and prompts, you will be nudged into writing and reflecting on what sustains you, what you love and what you need. Take this time for yourself as a flicker of possibility of how you might take time for yourself in general.

Note that this workshop does not focus on pain or pain management, rather uses writing as a way to express and support the experiences we have when we're in pain and in life in general.
