Self-Care Covenant Workshops
Self-Care Covenant Workshops are interactive sessions where attendees evaluate personal dimensions of health and well-being related to their daily life and work. The workshops, which are planned and led by trainers within the annual conferences, provide a structured opportunity for individuals to examine their current choices within the areas of:
- physical health,
- social health,
- mental/emotional health, and
- spiritual health.
During Self-Care Covenant Workshops, participants will:
- make the connections among spiritual, mental, social, and physical health.
- discuss how Servant Leadership requires self-care.
- experience stress management techniques and learn how to say, "No."
- discuss recommendations for eating, physical activity, water, sleep and how to personally implement those recommendations.
- self-assess current health behaviors and choices.
- develop a self-care covenant with an accountability plan.
- understand how social well-being affects overall health.
Workshops are currently being held across the United States. We encourage all clergy and lay workers to participate in these special events.
