Don’t Stress It! Understanding and dealing with stress in our daily lives

This Thursday, March 12
6pm at In Other Words Women’s Books & Resources
8 NE Killingsworth

Join Dicentra Collective for the first of a two part series dedicated to exploring stress and burnout and how they affect our bodies and lives.

After four events tackling heavy issues and in line with Dicentra’s vision for community builing and joy, this event will focus on connecting with each other via open dialogue about stress and burnout. We’re also bringing fun back into style by providing activities that are just that: fun.

Please note that this event is a potluck! Bring finger foods to share (because food is an imperative component of community).

The second event in this series will tackle stress and burnout in depth: we’re discuss the physiology of stress and care and support issues around stress.

Dicentra is a Portland, OR area collective actively engaged in creating radical communities of care, networks of support, and movements based on relationship building.

Dicentra Collective intends to create safe, learning space at our events. We ask that participants consider how their language and behavior impacts others in attendance. We are striving for a community that is supportive and inclusive. One where we are able to communicate and work to effectively resolve challenging situations.  It will take the collective accountability and awareness of each of us to create this kind of environment. A support team will be available to address any issues that may arise during our events; if you find yourself in need of support please seek out members of our team who will be identified at the start of each event.  Please visit for more information on our policies, procedures and support team.

If you need any accommodation for a special needs please contact us at
