SEUUMA Spring Retreat

March 9 - 12, 2020

Join colleagues from the Southeast UUMA Chapter for a time of self-care and personal reflection.  Embodied practices will compliment sessions based on the shame-resilience curriculum developed by Dr. Brene Brown.  

 

We all know that we need to take care of ourselves so that we can care for others.   Negative coping can take a toll on our physical health as well as our capacity for compassion.  It can also impact our ability to be in relation with our ministerial colleagues. As members of the UUMA, we are all working to improve collegial connections and the way we hold each other accountable.  One of the ways we can do this is to strengthen our ability to face shame.
