The Audre Lorde Project's 6th Annual Fighting Burn Out Retreat
Sky Lake Lodge, Mid-Hudson River Valley, 22 Hillcrest Lane, Rosendale, NY 12472
What is the Audre Lorde Project Fighting Burn Out Retreat?
From the evening of Friday, November 9th to Sunday, November 11th the Audre Lorde Project will host our 6th FREE Fighting Burn Out Retreat for organizers. The retreat seeks to create a space where; people can reintegrate their mind, body and soul; develop awareness of how to cope with burn out, practice self-care techniques and envision practices that ALP could incorporate into our collective strategies.
We will be joined by our very own 3rd Space Health and Wellness practitioners, Julia Bennett and Alicia Ohs! Participants will share and learn from one another on issues including self care and sustainability, dealing with anger, burnout, and fear. Time each day will be devoted to personal reflection, engaging meaningful conversation and fun! We will be returning to the Sky Lake Lodge, a Shambhala contemplative center for meditation, arts and community. (Think trails and Fall beauty you can find in the woods.) Sky Lake Lodge is located just two hours north of Manhattan in the Mid-Hudson River Valley.
