About this Event

Closed Captioning Provided

Healers and caregivers are invited to this workshop for a day of rest and renewal. Jonathan and Melvin have over forty years combined experience doing social justice work and will offer how the teachings in Buddhism and Yoga can connect us to the healing that is possible in community. Taking care of oneself is foundational to being of true service: as the saying goes, “make sure to put on your oxygen mask first.” We will explore how to cultivate and build resilience and self-compassion so that we can continue to be of service to self and others.
