Foundations of Mindful Caregiving 4-Part Online Series introduces mindfulness-based tools and approaches to caregivers, helping to build their emotional resilience and supporting them to maintain delivery of high-quality and compassionate care.
Based on our popular in-person Foundations of Mindful Caregiving course, this shorter online series will help you:
- Sustain focus and presence in the face of stressful circumstances
- Increase the capacity to cope with loss and suffering
- Establish healthy boundaries in relationships
- Deepen and sustain compassion for self and others
We will cover topics such as mindfulness, compassion, loss, and boundaries, providing the foundations of an approach to caregiving that reduces stress and burnout and allows you to provide quality care and connection to those you care for.
The sessions are run by an experienced Zen Caregiving Project instructor and will include meditation, self-reflection, experiential activities, and group sharing.
