Workshop Details

This workshop is designed for caregivers of people affected by brain injury who want to nurture their capacity to care for themselves and others. Through a blend of experiential activities, guided meditation, mindfulness, yoga, and group discussion, participants will be empowered with new tools, knowledge, and community connection to more skillfully navigate the challenges of being a caregiver.

By investigating the themes of adjusting expectations, finding acceptance, learning to adapt to change, and growing in a new relationship, participants will discover how to see that the power of change starts from within, how to work through stuck places, and how to cultivate more fulfilling and compassionate relationships with themselves and others. In particular, participants will take away practical tools related to:

• The art of listening
