Overcoming Burnout and Passion Fatigue as Social Justice Change Agents

Learn the proven self-care strategies you need as a change agent to conquer burnout and passion fatigue so you can stay in the game and be on top of YOUR game, all the time.

Are you one of the thousands of change agents on the verge of burnout?
Don’t make excuses or brush off the warning signs.
If you’re ignoring the symptoms of burnout – or you’re already aware you’re close to flaming out but don’t know exactly what to do – help is right here.

I’m still going through the motions, but I know I’ve lost my spark. What gives?

If you’re like many change agents going through these troublesome times (and that’s putting it mildly), you’re questioning everything:

  • How can we make any new progress when it feels like just the opposite is happening?
  • How can I keep going when I feel so empty…discouraged…depleted…hopeless?
  • Is it even worth it anymore???

“There are a lot of people out there who are struggling. But I can’t lift someone else up if I don’t take care of myself, too.”
– Laverne Cox

In six short weeks, you will not only learn WHY self-care is a must, but WHAT strategies and tools you need to conquer burnout and HOW to permanently implement them into your everyday life – effortlessly, and then how to SHARE them with others.

All the strategies you need to overcome burnout and passion fatigue, in one place.

Tell me if you relate to any of these statements:

  • I’m still committed to my vision of what I know IS possible (and the urgent need for change)
  • I’m overcome by feelings of overwhelm and discouragement.
  • Most days, it feels like I’m running on empty. It’s becoming more and more of a struggle to keep forging ahead.
  • Time for myself? What’s that?!
  • I know I’ve been neglecting close relationships. I feel guilty on so many levels. Don’t remind me.
  • I have used drugs, alcohol, sex, gambling, shopping, etc… to numb me and/or escape the pressures I face.
  • I believe I’m supposed to do all and be all – to set this glowing example for others.
  • I feel like I’m drowning.

Kathy Obear’s Self-Care training was phenomenal! Before the program, I knew that I needed to take more time for myself and knew exactly what I should do… but I was not sure where to start. I thought I was good at self-reflection and determining what I needed; however, Kathy’s training took me deeper and allowed me to pinpoint priorities that I have been pondering for months. Not only were we given tools to help with this process (understanding what you need and deserve at this point in your life), we were also given tools on how to implement your priorities as well as manage stress. Fantastic experience and a must for everyone.

“Self-care is never a selfish act – it is simply good stewardship of the only gift I have, the gift I was put on earth to offer others. Anytime we can listen to true self and give the care it requires, we do it not only for ourselves, but for the many others whose lives we touch.”
– Parker Palmer

You May Be Thinking…

How can I afford this?
I used to think a program like this was too expensive, until I counted up the financial cost of all the lost productivity, damaged relationships, and the overwhelming stress I brought home each day. I realized I was worth investing in so I could be a far more effective leader, mentor, change agent. Not to mention how I’ve seen people’s capacity and results improve drastically when they learn and implement these self care skills.

Will this work for me?
The role that you have chosen as a change agent can be mentally and physically exhausting, and the effects of stress and overwhelm are no secret. Your success in affecting this world comes down to your ability to maintain and sustain your efforts long-term.

Do I really need this?
If you’re wondering if really need this course, I have two questions for you: What are you currently sacrificing to maintain your current activities? And how long will you be able to do so?
For most of us, being a change agent isn’t about a single goal, but rather it’s a way of life. And even though you’re passionate about making change, you should still enjoy that life along the way.

How do I know this is the right program for me?
This program is not for everyone. If you’re interested in deepening your capacity to help others resolve difficult situations, but not sure this program is for you,
you can sign-up for a call with me and I will be glad to explore all your questions and concerns.

There is no time to waste. The dangers and threats are increasing every day. We cannot just sit back or look away as decades of progress are dismantled before our eyes. Our lives and those of the billions around the world depend on our collective ability to create social justice now. Not in a decade, not in twenty years, but RIGHT NOW.

We need each and every one of us present, healthy, energized, and working together to create innovative approaches and solutions – to resist, manifest solutions, and truly create the world we envision. For this to happen, we each have to learn how to avoid burnout and passion fatigue as we muster the capacity to stay in it for the long haul.

“I have come to believe that caring for myself is not self-indulgent. Caring for myself is an act of survival.”
