Judaism & Self-Care
In our course, we've created a safe, non-stressful environment to discuss regular stressors in our lives. Through discussions on anxiety, academics, reproductive health, and technology, we've used a Jewish lense to focus on self-care techniques to guide us through stressful moments and time periods. By sharing in a larger group and in pairs, we've practicing active listening skills to fully support our peers. We end each class with a guided Jewish meditation, complete with relaxing music and optional aromatherapy hand massages. Our goal is to leave class a bit more relaxed and spiritually-centered, in hopes to keep this serenity throughout our next week.
