O632: Love and Self Sufficiency in Splash Fall 2019 (Nov. 02, 2019)
What does it mean to love? Do you appoint too much of your self-worth in the validation of others? Do you seclude yourself from others to keep your guard up? Most people feel inclined to align themselves with one of these binary trains of thought, but there's much more to love than a one-sided approach. With the help of poetry by modern-day poets and artists we will break down what it means to not only have healthy relationships with others, but also with one's self. Topics include but are not limited to: self-care/self-love, communication, and healthy boundaries. As an instructor, I acknowledge the influences of cultural, communal, and familial uniqueness and, while this course lays a framework for pondering such topics, I urges students to apply concepts in ways meaningful and relevant to their own lives and worlds; this is not a one-size-fits-all guide, but rather an outline for YOU to build upon for yourself.
