Description:
“Caring for Our Aging Parents: A Workshop for Adult Children”. In this two-session workshop, you will join other adult sons and daughters who are or expect to be caregivers for their aging parents. We will use the sessions—and the safe space we create together to: Share experiences of caregiving and its challenges; Explore more deeply feelings, inner conflicts, and the obstacles we face; Develop some practical strategies for self-care, addressing personal needs, and keeping life in balance by gaining confidence in our own inner resources and wisdom.

Facilitated by:
Paula Stone—who cared for her aging mother—has had a lifelong interest in personal growth and healing modalities. She is the author of a commercially published self-help book; an award-winning playwright; an experienced support-group leader and trained facilitator; and a longtime practitioner of mindfulness meditation which has included completion of a yearlong mindfulness intensive. Her new full-length play Because She’s My Mother is about an adult daughter’s bittersweet struggles—to balance her life, face loss, and let go—as she cares for her failing mother. Paula is retired from the World Bank, where she currently serves on the steering committee of the retirees’ “Members Helping Members” program; she has a PhD from MIT.
