Mindful Living: Everyday Soul Care

  • Chrysalis Institute 213 Roseneath Road Richmond, VA 23221 (map)

There’s a misconception that self-care is going to the spa or taking a vacation, but it’s much more accessible than that! Self-care isn’t an intervention or an occasional indulgence, it’s a healthier, happier, more connected way of living each day. Self-care is about making choices that support your overall wellness, and discovering what makes YOU tick. What fulfills you, physically, emotionally, and spiritually? What honors your needs and limitations? What would your day look like if you made self-care a part of every moment? We’ll create a holistic self-care plan with specific goals and practices just for you.

This is for you if you…

  • Feel stressed, overwhelmed, and depleted

  • Tend to focus more on caring for others than caring for yourself

  • Want to slow down to rediscover little things that make you happy
