In our increasingly troubled
world, we helping professionals face unique challenges, often characterized by
overwhelm and despair. In response to the daily demands of our work, the need
for self-care takes on new dimensions. We must find ways to nourish ourselves
that are both fundamental and consistent.
Participants in this event will
have an opportunity to take time away from the hectic pace of daily life, to
learn about, and experience, mindfulness practices, taking every-day acts and
transforming them into nourishment. The day will be an interweaving of silence,
contemplation, sharing and poetry.
retreat is sponsored by Redding CAMFT and open to all helping professionals.
All registrations include a
vegetarian Asian inspired lunch.
