Unny Nambudiripad, Freeman Wicklund – Our Wellness and Liberation (OWL) Retreat

Date grant awarded: May 29, 2019

Our Wellness and Liberation (OWL) Animal Advocates Retreat helps strengthen the animal advocacy community in Minnesota by addressing compassion fatigue and burnout in animal advocates. We aim to holistically address this complex issue by providing training and retreats that teaches about sustainable activism, helpful tools for managing feelings of anger and frustration, tools to de-stress, and connection with other activists. We will use meditation and other proven techniques to help deepen animal activists’ love and compassion for themselves, for advocates they work with, for the industries they challenge, and for everybody.
