Are you someone who is a caregiver to a loved one?

This 4-session course is designed for individuals in a caregiving role to a loved one, such as an elderly parent, a disabled child, a spouse, or other family member with a health or limiting condition.

This course will review the elements of self-compassion, the foundations of mindfulness that support self-compassion and introduce practices to support the ability to bring care to oneself in moments of difficulty in the caregiving role. Each 90-minute session will include a brief talk, a guided practice, and an opportunity for Q&A and discussion.

Extensive research has demonstrated the benefits of mindfulness and self-compassion in enhancing well-being.

Space is limited to 12 participants. Please register as soon as possible.
