The Heart of Caregiving: A Guide to Compassionate Care & Self-Renewal
Tue, March 28, 2017, 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM EDT
If you are a caregiver, this workshop is for you! Whether you are taking care of a family member or loved one at home or if you are employed as a professional caregiver, this full-day workshop provides an experience that is educational, enlightening and uplifting.
While care-giving is gratifying and meaningful work, we all know that providing daily care for another can be challenging and demanding physically, emotionally and spiritually.
We invite you to join us in this workshop as we shine the light of awareness on the roll of caregiver and on practices of self-care that can result in greater self-awareness, self-fulfillment and openhearted compassion.
Join us as we celebrate and elevate your care-giving role as an essential and honored contributor to our thriving and compassionate community.
In this workshop you will have opportunity to:
look at your own personal needs and emotions surrounding your role as a caregiver;
learn about and experience some basic practices of self-care and self-compassion can contribute to your being a more compassionate caregiver;
recognize your personal values that give meaning to your life and inform your work as a caregiver;
identify and acknowledge your unique strengths and abilities;
learn to build resilience as you tap into your reservoir of inner resources that is always available to you;
connect with other caregivers; and
enjoy a day of self-renewal and celebration in a warm and welcoming space.
This workshop is facilitated by Eve Willson, MSW, who draws from her years of experience in social services direct care and management/leadership, her personal experience as caregiver, and her practice as a certified life coach.
Workshop length: 6 hours
Workshop fee: $40
