Care providing has obvious challenges—stress, energy demands, tension, and excess workload. And it has hidden costs—self-criticism, sacrificing self-care, and despair. In this day retreat, we focus on renewal and 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, gentle stretching, and group discussion.
