TALK TITLES & SUMMARIES
Weekly Topic Title: Evolution of Self-Care
The evolution of self-care has taken several turns since its discovery. Self-care started in the medical field with a similar meaning
as today. It included activities patients in the 1950s were advised to see their worth. This encouragement to
see their worth would, in turn, help the patient cultivate healthier habits, like eating right, and exercising, in general cutting off the
unsupportive habits that are contrary to the rules of self-preservation. As time went on, the term was used in other fields like the
civil rights movement which encouraged the practice of self-care in order to continue the pursuit of equality.
Weekly Topic Title: Balancing Grief and Joy
Grief is an unavoidable emotion we all go through at some point in our life. We do not only experience grief when we lose
someone dear to us; other life situations can cause grief as well. To embrace self-care in trying times, it is imperative to
understand how to surf through the water of grief to joy.
Weekly Topic Pleasure
Guest Speaker - Rev. Dr. Patrick Harbula
Pleasure is a pleasant emotion of contentment felt deep within because of an event that builds positive feelings.
It is the opposite of grief and sadness. A wave of calmness washes over the body when it is felt, keeping the body and mind
in a peaceful state. Pleasure is imperative in every self-care process because it is the summarized
feeling of self-care. Every self-care aims to improve the emotions and feelings in you—pleasure is the aim. In the end,
caring for oneself, including pleasing the body and mind is self-care.
Weekly Topic Title: Personalizing the Infinite
There are infinite possibilities waiting to be tapped. Everyone can be everything they imagined and more if they
only knew that they hold the key to unlocking their good. Personalization is taking ownership of the spiritual power
that lies right inside you. Each one of us is responsible for allowing that spiritual being to express through you, as you,
and in you, so you can be a light-shower to others. Just like objects, we can also personalize the infinite
possibilities of the universe and become who we ought to be.
