Free Workshop. The Caregiving Café
Aa family caregiver support group — is hosting my special workshop “When Nature Sings — for the Caregiver”, February 4, 2016. We welcome all who would benefit from this program.
Did you know that anyone who helps others overcome physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual problems is a healer? Everyone from licensed professionals to family caregivers will be called to this role at some point in their lives. Unfortunately, people who devote much of their energy to serving others often begin to feel worn down by a growing sense of mental and physical exhaustion, compassion fatigue or burnout.
A powerful way for caregivers to renew themselves is to develop a closer connection with nature. Indigenous cultures, such as the Taino natives of Puerto Rico, know that nature communicates in many ways. By learning to perceive this calming source of wisdom, caregivers can revitalize their spirit.
This interactive workshop combines inspirational anecdotes based in Taino spirituality, original photography and live Taino flute music to expose the timeless wisdom that nature transmits through the world around us. Uplifting participation in music-making, simple native dances and role-playing reveals insights, encourages meaningful discussion and teaches practices that can be used to refresh your spirit on a regular basis.
This workshop was made possible by a grant from the PYM Indian Committee. For more information on When Nature Sings workshops:
