A pre-holiday respite! You give a LOT. All day, every day. It’s highly likely that you know quite well the feeling of being emotionally and physically drained. Some call it Compassion Fatigue. It’s also quite possible you also know you need to up your self-care game but you don’t know how. We feel depleted because we’ve been so busy taking care of everyone else that we’ve neglected ourselves. This program is designed to give you the gift of you. To take time for yourself, to rejuvenate the mind, body and spirit and to enter into the holiday season with a renewed perspective and commitment to not forget the importance of taking exceptional care of yourself. It’s not about sacrificing ourselves to help others, it’s about filling ourselves so much that we are giving to others from our abundance. 

This compassion fatigue-busting weekend includes:

  • Learning how to manage your mind rather than being managed by it.
  • Boundaries: the ultimate in self-care
  • Stress reduction practices for busy people
  • How mindfulness can bring calm to your life
  • And more
