"Collective care and mutual care are the keys to our liberation."
“Collective care and mutual care are the keys to our liberation.”
There is a lot of talk - perhaps too much - about self care. Self care looks like baths and pedicures and afternoon tea to some. But if we don’t tie authentic self care (rest, mindful movement, slow eating) to our mutual care for one another, we are doomed. Getting back to the old ways, the ways of the ancients and the ancestors, is, I believe, the key to our freedom. It is a liberatory practice to care for others - this is commUNITY.
How have you practiced mutual care lately? Collective care? Let me know in the comments below!
