Equanimity and Buddhist Wisdom for Caregivers

How do we sustain our compassionate care for our children, parents, or patients without burning out and becoming depleted ourselves? The ancient practice of Equanimity grounded in Buddhist wisdom offers a radically different way to be with suffering. Equanimity is neither passive nor indifferent; It is the ability to stay present with both difficulty and joy. This workshop is for all those who wish to be a compassionate presence for themselves and others in acute crises or long-term conditions. Bring a journal for notetaking and reflections.
Program fee of $100 includes all 4 sessions. If you would prefer to attend individual sessions ($30 each), please contact Program Manager, Bonnie Mis.
