Resilient Resistance: Self-Care for Troubled Times

Many of us are feeling anxious, depressed and depleted by the constant onslaught of injustices facing our communities every day. Some of us may even be to the point of burning out from the ceaseless work we do to push back against them. It. doesn’t. have. to. be. this. way. Resilient Resistance: Self-Care for Troubled Times offers us practical tools to care for ourselves with the support of yoga and herbs so that we can be well enough to fight the system head on.

Creating a more just and beautiful world requires that all of us stay engaged for the long haul, so Jen Stovall and Bear Hebert are sharing strategies for doing justice work without burning out or giving up. Jen brings her vast knowledge of herbs, nutrition and lifestyle, while Bear offers movement practices and breath work to calm us down, open us up, and nurture us fully.

We’re building our capacity to incapacitate the system.
