About this event

Calling all Houston ONS Chapter Nurses! Find sanctuary and a community of caregivers as we celebrate (monthly) and reflect upon the resilience and hardship of caregiving through music, movement, mindfulness and self-expression.

Led by a registered nurse and professional artists, each workshop will guide you through artistic experiences and moments for deep reflection. Join us to nurture yourself with self-compassion and creative joy in the midst of an extremely difficult season.

Designed to build emotional resilience and prevent burnout, this series offers a safe space to honor the sacred gift of caring for ourselves as we care for others.

What is it? Creative Caregivers is a monthly, one-hour virtual experience for self-compassion and creative joy. It's a community by and for ONS Nurses where we are seen and heard by each other in both hardship and resilience.

What does the workshop entail? Workshops guide participants in creative exercises as a tool for reflection on the caregiving experience. It could include prompts for expressive writing, dancing, visual art, storytelling, and/or mindfulness combined with group discussion, solo creating time and interactive sharing. Every gathering has solo reflecting/creating time, (optional) opportunities to share, and group discussion.

Who leads it? The workshop is hosted by Creative Caregivers and is led by a rotating panel of highly skilled artist facilitators.

Creative Caregivers is a project of Available Wellness and The Clinic. We are a registered nurse and movement artist partnership who lead unique, research-based programming to build resilience and collective care for healthcare communities.

Available Wellness facilitates adaptive movement and mindfulness experiences to support an embodied response to the curiosities, celebrations, and challenges of healthcare spaces. Founder Alison Waldman's specially designed sessions demystify and democratize wellness practices to empower individuals and communities across age, ability, and levels of entry through modalities of dance, meditation and adaptive yoga. Watch her TEDx talk Why we should be dancing with our doctors and learn more here. (Washington, D.C.)

The Clinic, founded in 2017 by nurse and artist Tara Rynders, combines arts, music, movement and caring science to create immersive experiences and workshops for health care professionals. The Clinic supports self-compassion, self-care and raises awareness around the detrimental effects of compassion fatigue, burnout and secondary traumatic stress. Learn more here (Denver, CO)
