Please Note: This retreat is offered online only. We invite you to try this creative form of practice as we take care of one another and respond skillfully to COVID-19.

In the many months since the pandemic began, the always difficult task of care providing has become even more challenging. The stress, energy demands, tension, and excess workload that go along with care providing in “normal” times have all been compounded by the health crisis. Therefore, you are warmly invited to take a day for yourself for renewal and revitalization.

In this day, we focus on refreshing perspective and vitality through mindfulness practices and self-care techniques. We also explore some of the skillful means the Buddha taught that can mitigate the stress of care providing.

You will learn the importance of placing attention, the art of letting go of expectations, how to determine what your true responsibilities are, and how to recognize and respond to the confusion that arises around care providing. The program includes guided meditations, dharma talks, self-care techniques, and gentle stretching.
