Caring for the Caregivers: Insight Meditation Retreat for Home Health and Hospice Workers

This retreat is an invitation for leaders and caregivers in the home care and hospice sectors to receive an in-depth training in meditation. This practice can develop a balance of mind that helps to center and sustain us in our work with people who are sick and dying. Through guided meditations, Q&A sessions, periods of silence (including during meals), talks on cultivating equanimity in the face of daily suffering, and optional daily yoga, we will move towards deeper care for ourselves and more compassionate care for others.
