for Professional/Volunteer Caregivers
Healing Circles were birthed out of the Overcoming Compassion Fatigue, the Cost of Caring seminar. The attendees at our first meeting stated that they and their organizations needed help monthly. Currently, we have a Healing Circle in DC each month, but at this time, it is full. As space and our schedules open up, we hope to add more circles across the DMV.
We are happy to announce that we are offering Healing Circles in NOVA starting in June, 2023. These 2.5-hour monthly workshops are designed to help identify where you are holding stress in your body and teach you how to release it in a healthy way. Each month will feature a different theme and include a psychoeducational component (40 minutes) and a choice of at least two 90-minute workshops (for example, using herbs and natural products to reduce stress, visual art, & movement).
Attending the full day Overcoming Compassion Fatigue: the Cost of Caring seminar is helpful but not required. Sign up early as we can only accommodate 30 participants.
At this time, all workshops have a Christian theme. Please contact us if you are interested in a secular version as we can provide that as well.
