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.

This retreat is sponsored by Redding CAMFT and open to all helping professionals.    

6 BBS CEU hours will be provided. 

 All registrations include a vegetarian Asian inspired lunch.
