Self Compassion Workshop

Please join me Saturday, February 8th, 2020 from 8:30am-12:00pm for some self care for healers. This workshop is ideal for those working in helping professions such as social work, counseling, addictions, nursing, emergency response, teachers, and first responders. Light refreshment will be provided tea, and fruit. Space is limited.

This workshop will provide information on Dr. Kristin Neff's work on Self-Compassion and her self-compassion workbook. Participants will explore their values and beliefs around the material and create a self-care plan using Traditional Chinese Medicine's 5 elements. Workshop will allow for processing of beliefs and discussion to support compassion fatigue and burnout for those who work in helping professions were they are exposed to trauma, and high high risk for vicarious trauma.  Workshop will be designed to be very nurturing and supportive of self- care. 

Workshop will include a 60 minutes gentle yoga flow practice and Meta Meditation.  Practice will include essential oils.
