Self-Compassion for Caregivers
April 6 (Saturday morning)

Self-Compassion for Caregivers


ONLINE

2-hour workshop


Many of us are caregivers, whether we realize it or not. If you manage, coordinate, or provide care for anyone who depends on you for their basic needs of food, physical assistance, medical care, or emotional support, you are a caregiver.

Especially when those people are your family members, days can be long, and paid leave isn’t an option. Caregivers often find themselves stretched thin, giving so much of themselves to support others that they neglect their own well-being. Burnout can occur- but it isn’t inevitable.

Do you want to replenish and sustain your inner reserves of joy, strength, and fulfillment? Join us as we explore the gift that self-compassion is to everyone!

In this workshop, we will explore how to:

  • Cultivate a deeper understanding of our emotional needs
  • Nurture your own inner resources of care for yourself
  • Develop practical strategies for integrating mindfulness and self-compassion into daily life
  • Create a more compassionate and sustainable caregiving environment for ourselves and those we support
  • Empower ourselves to enhance our resilience and well-being through mindfulness and self-compassion practices

In this workshop, we’ll engage in guided mindfulness practices, interactive discussions, and reflective exercises designed to foster a compassionate mindset. By acknowledging the challenges inherent in caregiving and learning to respond to them with self-compassion, we will gain valuable tools to navigate the emotional demands of the caregiving. Join us as we explore how mindful self-compassion can be a powerful source of strength and renewal for caregivers.

Self-compassion is like a muscle. The more we practice flexing it, especially when life doesn’t go exactly according to plan (a frequent scenario for most of us), the stronger and more resilient our compassion muscle becomes.
