Attend to our Being–Boundary Setting for Asian American Womxn

FREE Workshop/Webinar–Part I

In cultures where the expectation is to sacrifice ourselves for the greater good, many of us did not feel safe, and did not learn to identify or voice our limitations and our discomfort. Many of us were especially discouraged from voicing our preferences.  As we continue to witness the chaos and violence in this world, we understand that there is much to change and improve.  At the same time, our individual selves need to be healed and be healthy to make broader changes. 

Part I (was on Wed, April 6th): Attend to our Being–Boundary Setting for Asian American Womxn

Recommended reading: “Set Boundaries, Find Peace: A Guide to Reclaiming Yourself” by Nedra Glover Tawwab. (Great info and tips; doesn’t integrate challenges of Asian cultural context.)

Included:

  • Exercises to ground and honor ourselves so can recognize and identify own boundaries.
  • Cultural context that conflicts/impedes boundary setting.
  • Navigating intercultural/intergenerational communication style differences.
  • Some tips for boundary setting within Asian American cultural context.
  • Q&A

Handouts:

  • Communication tips to maximize relational harmony or connection.
  • Reminders of different ways to say “no” so we can attend to ourselves and have room to say “yes” to what’s more important.
