Event Details

If you are reading this, there is a good chance that you’ve suffered from burnout at some point in your life. Perhaps you have also witnessed friends, colleagues or even whole organizations in various levels of exhaustion. In this workshop, we will examine what burnout looks like, how it can be prevented, and ways it can be addressed. You will be invited to examine what resiliency looks like for you and together, we will explore various tips and tools to ensure that when things get tough, we can all bounce back a little faster.

Date: Monday January 22
Time: 6-9
Location: George Brown College, 200 King St East, St. James Campus
Room: Quiet Lounge, room 150 (located inside Kings Lounge)
Accessibility: We will gather in a barrier free space. Subway tokens are available to attendees by request.

Trainer: Demetria Jackson wants to live in a world where self-care is seen as a collective responsibility and where the body is seen as a gateway to liberation. As a body acceptance and wellness educator/facilitator she shares ancient medicinal practices like yoga, meditation and reiki energy healing to help people come home to, feel safe in, and access the infinite wisdom of their bodies. Her self-care workshops explore the root cause of burnout and offer both immediate, long-term and preventative first-aid techniques to help alleviate the main and subtle symptoms of burning out.
