Care Begins with Me - An Online Workshop for Women

An Online Workshop for Women with Judith Frizlen
Sunday, January 21, 2024, 12-2:30pm Central

“When we are in the position of caring for others, we need a plan for self-care. We cannot give what we do not have. As adults, we will not have what we have not given to ourselves. We are responsible for prioritizing self-care, rather than leaving it until the end of the day if there is any time or energy left.

The best plans align with the seasons of the year, seasons of life, and our own personal needs. Let’s take time to make a plan for self-care, one that we will do, one that will give to us what we can then give to others.

My rhythms of self care sustain me, and I want to assist others in creating their own plan for self care. Join us in the workshop, “Care Begins With Me” and step into self-care in the new year. “ 


Judith Frizlen

This workshop is for you… 

…If you find yourself drained at the end of the day and wishing you had more time for yourself.

… If you regularly find that you have neglected your own basic care needs in the midst of busyness.

… if you are suddenly pouring more hours of your day into caring for others and wondering how you might get back something juicy in life just for you.

… If you want to discover what exactly gets in the way of devoting time for yourself, be it literal time constraints or subconscious road blocks.

… If you are seeking a village of support for finding a more sustainable pace and rhythm to life.
