The Path to Loving Ourselves: Self-Compassion and Self-Care for Turbulent Times

09/19/2023 (1:00 pm - 2:00 pm)

FREE, ONLINE: Join Shelly for an online conversation about The Path to Loving Ourselves, hosted by Glenbard Parent Series. The practice of self-care is most often touted for its profound mind, body, and spirit benefits. Shelly Tygielski shows that self-care can also be a powerful tool for spurring transformative collective action. In a winning combination of memoir, manifesto, and how-to, Shelly shares her evolution from a Jerusalem-born child of traditional Sephardic Jewish parents to a middle-class American suburban youth who questioned her faith to a young executive in corporate America. As she used radical self-care practices to manage a serious chronic health issue, she had an epiphany: finding true health and peace is not a solo endeavor but one that lives in connection with others.
