Virtual Retreat: Safety and Care Planning


From 12:00 PM until 6:00 PM ET

$250 - $750 sliding scale

Presented by Spring Up /


The Safety and Care Planning Retreat is an experience focused around collectivizing care work and examining internal consent practices when engaging in this work. Aimed towards advocates, organizers, crisis responders, therapists, teachers, and lawyers — this offering engages participants in the process of creating a safety care plan, how to care for yourself when supporting others, and utilizing somatic approaches to (re)connect with embodied wisdom. While traditional care models often work from a place of saviorism, our pedagogy embraces harm reduction in collaboration with others. Engaging in harm reduction pairs with Spring Up’s safety and care plans as it allows people to identify how they want to be supported, by who, and when. By the end of this retreat, participants will have learned from Spring Up Teaching Artists and one another how boundaries, mutual aid, harm reduction, and somatic embodiment support an equitable distribution of care work.

This retreat will be held on April 15, 2021 at 9am-3pm PST / 10am-4pm MST / 12pm-6pm EST with a 1 hour break from 12pm-1pm PST/ 1pm-2pm MST/ 3pm-4pm EST 

Each retreat includes optional coaching to support in personalizing the collective’s learnings: 1 session for $100 more or 3 sessions for $250 more. Please contact us if you are interested in purchasing coaching.
