Nurturing Your Future Self with Stacy-Ann Buchanan

Good For You: Nurturing Your Future Self with Stacy-Ann Buchanan

Join us this Mental Health Awareness Month for an empowering workshop tailored exclusively for women. Drawing inspiration from the book, "Good For You: 114 Mindful Practices Every Woman Can Adopt for a More Harmonious Life", this transformative session offers a deep dive into holistic well-being and personal growth.

Throughout the workshop, we delve into mindful practices outlined in the book, guiding participants through practical strategies that encompass physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional well-being. In addition to addressing common stressors, we also acknowledge and discuss the nuances of high-functioning anxiety and depression, offering insights and tools to manage these challenges effectively.

Blending self-reflection with actionable steps, this workshop serves as a comprehensive guide, enabling women to tap into their emotional, mental, and spiritual intelligence. By incorporating the wisdom of the book, participants gain insights into adopting a softer, more compassionate approach to life, laying the foundation for a future that authentically aligns with their well-being. 

Space is limited, registration is required. Public: $50 +HST, Members: $42.50 +HST. Ticket price includes access to the workshop, PAMA general admission, a signed copy of the book “Good For You: Nurturing Your Future Self” and light refreshments.

Bio: 
Buchanan’s impact, entrepreneurial work ethic, and achievements have led her to being selected as one of the 100 Black Women to Watch in Canada, one of the 150 Black Women Making Canada Better, one of the 150 Leading Canadians for Mental Health, and landing a TEDx Talk. She is also the author of the well-received book, “Good For You: 114 Mindful Practices Every Woman Can Adopt For A More Harmonious Life.” 

The self-directed and self-funded award-winning documentary, The Blind Stigma, made Canadian history when it debuted as the first documentary produced in Canada that takes an in-depth look at how mental health is perceived within the Black community, cementing Buchanan as a documentary filmmaker. As a recognized brand, The Blind Stigma has since branched out into a podcast that continues to explore such stigmas, dissect the multiple factors that contribute to mental illness in Black communities, and provides a safe space for stories to be heard. 

Her body of work has firmly planted her career on disrupting systemic anti-Black racism by taking holistic approaches to dismantle the stigmas of how mental health is constructed. Through raising awareness, directing positive dialogues to fuel resources, and orchestrating safe, constructive spaces for Black voices to be amplified, Stacy-Ann Buchanan’s ultimate objective is to reclaim the Black narrative.
