Interpreters are charged with bearing witness to some of life’s greatest beauty and deepest pain, all while maintaining a stance of neutrality and flexibility. Over time, and especially during times of stress, this can take a toll on your body, mind and spirit.
In order to show up for others and do the work that’s ours to do in the world, we must have a foundation of self-care that sustains us.
During this workshop we'll explore burnout and its effects on your life. We’ll look at how to make time for yourself, what areas of your life need tending to avoid burnout, and simple ways to celebrate your accomplishments and receive support.
Upon registration, you'll have access to the recorded workshop where you’ll come away with a doable Burnout Proof plan, more peace and clarity, and a community to support you in taking better care of yourself.
"I loved learning new ways of self care and managing my thoughts and feelings. I also am happy that I am not alone in the way I feel and there are ways to get through it."
