Compassion Fatigue: Going Back to Grazing (A Workshop for Caregivers)

Compassion Fatigue: Going back to Grazing (A Workshop for Caregivers)

Being in the role of a caregiver for a beloved friend or family member takes an enormous amount of physical stamina, emotional energy and inner balance to stay present within one's self and for the person cared for.

In this workshop we will explore the various elements needed to maintain one's equilibrium in order to continually give in the situation. Through understanding the emotional message chart, horse exercises, boundary work, looking at various roles that are held by the caregiver and the patient, tools will be given to navigate the caregivers path.

Tara has had the experience of caregiving for a dear friend journeying through the experience of leukemia. She is inspired to share the tools she learned to maintain her own balance through a time which was filled with much beauty, difficulty and heart-opening awareness. If we can learn to find our own center while caring for others in need we can reap the benefits and bounty through the role of loving someone in need.
