Understanding Radical Self–Care
Self–care is finally taking its rightful place in our zeitgeist. It may feel like a relatively new part of the conversation as we talk more about mental health. Yet ideas about self–care can be linked back to the Greek Philosophers of Ancient Athens and traced through the philosophy of Michel Foucault and activism of Audre Lorde. In a time when self–care is often re–packaged as a bubble bath or scented candles, let’s go back to our roots. Join us to explore how self–care has evolved in modern times; what we may have lost in the process and the importance of self–care for our self–prioritisation and self–esteem.
