An 8-week online course for family caregivers or anyone who cares for a loved one.
Accompanying an aging parent, ill partner, child or friend can offer profound opportunities for personal growth and transformation, as well as challenges. This on-line course shows you, step-by-step, how to use contemplative resources, such as mindfulness, meditation and compassion reflections, to inform and nurture your own self-care and the support that you give.
Join this course whether you are caring now, or anticipate caring for a loved one in the near future. Receive support from a community of like-minded people and learn effective contemplative methods to:
- Nurture your sense of inner well-being and confidence to stay present with an open heart.
- Strengthen your resilience to prevent stress and to heal exhaustion.
- Understand and heal difficult relationships.
While the course draws from the groundbreaking book, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, it is suitable for people of all faith traditions, as well as for people who do not identify with a particular spiritual tradition. No previous experience in meditation is required.
