Event Description

As professionals attending to end-of-life care and grief we hear the stories of the ones we serve and witness their pain and their struggle.

It’s not our pain, but we are holding space for it. We are carrying it with them.

This often results in what has been called “vicarious trauma,” “secondary trauma,” “compassion fatigue,” and “trauma exposure response.” 

This workshop is for you if you are a caregiver, counselor, nurse, doctor, or other professional working with grief and/or end-of-life care.

Learn the signs, symptoms, and ways you can support your body and mind through your work.

In this environment space is held for you instead of you holding space for others, allowing you to reconnect with the “why” of your work and tune into what your particular BodyMind needs to stay regulated throughout your day.

This approach blends a bottom-up approach to the brain through movement and breath with top-down mindful inquiry support whole-brain integration and allow for replenishing on a deep level.

You will learn how to track your own physiology and nervous system so it's easier to regulate during stress and dysregulating interactions.
