After seven months into lockdown, we bet a lot of you have already been feeling stuck. The adjustments to the new normal have been overwhelming for most and our time in isolation may also be contributing to feelings that have been difficult to process. If you’ve been struggling to make sense of your emotions, you might appreciate a little introspection with this workshop.
Local menstrual cup brand Sinaya Cup is teaming up with DOx Manila to host “Meet Yourself: An Emotional Awareness Workshop” on Oct. 17 via Zoom and Facebook live. The sessions aims to educate people about emotional intelligence and how they can build emotional awareness to get through these difficult times with registered psychologist Karen Ann Macalinao and certified life coach Trinidad Isabel O’leary.
This event is going to be held in celebration of The DO School’s “DO Day” a.k.a. the annual International Day of DOing on Oct. 18. Being a global organization that “enables a purposeful economy that is sustainable and innovative,” The DO School aims to address the mental health crisis brought by the pandemic by showing “self-compassion and working on ourselves.”
“In this workshop, we’ll learn about developing emotional awareness, one of the steps towards maintaining our mental health. In seeking to understand our emotions, we will also take a look at the different challenges women may face in the modern world and how these relate to their emotions,” they wrote on their event invite.
Tune in to their Facebook live from 6PM to 9PM on Oct. 17. If you want to participate via Zoom, you can sign up here.
