“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence,
it is self-preservation,
and that is an act of political warfare.”
~ Audre Lorde ~
The World Health Organization defines mental health as “a state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.”
To be “well” is to have the capacity to engage substantively with both one’s mind and one’s world at large, allowing an individual to make lasting positive changes and pursue a meaningful life.
Many women live within patriarchal structures that either impede, restrict or ignore their ability and autonomy to develop a woman’s sense of self. Brave Spaces believes experiencing self-care is the foundation for transformation and self-determination.
We develop workshops and retreats to build self-care awareness and capabilities. In building these, we become mindful of who we are, how we act, what we say and think. We can then change our lives for the better, and maybe, also the world at large.
