Issue 12 of Awakened Voices

Self Care for Caregivers

At Awakenings, we understand the critical role caregivers play in the healing journey of others. We also know that we cannot care for others when our own cups are empty. That’s why Awakenings, with support from The Chicago Foundation for Women, is presenting  “Self Care for Caregivers.”  This suite contains a variety of journal prompts, artistic activities, and meditations designed to offer a self care solution for any moment.

Judith's Circle

Judith’s Circle is Awakenings’ squad of core, committed, monthly donors. Members play a critical role in supporting survivor artists and sustaining our work. Members of Judith’s Circle will gain access to exclusive content from our survivor artists, invitations to private First Look Nights for all exhibits, and more. Demonstrate your ongoing commitment to our mission to showcase the creative expression of survivors of sexual violence.
