A Self-Compassion Retreat for Caregivers
Sunday March 22, 2020
10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

This is a self-care retreat for caregivers, giving you an opportunity to play in the woods, to take some time for mindful reflection, meditation and creative self expression. You will have the opportunity to create a personal self-compassion art box using collage materials, acrylics, found objects, and writing. As caregivers, the care you give, can find you depleted, this is an opportunity to be replenished, to sooth the heart and to care for our own souls. Spring Equinox is a wonderful nurturing time to create this space for yourself, spend a day in the forest and leave rejuvenated. (March 21st is the International Day of the Forests).

Included: A vegan plant-based lunch. A box, paints and most collage materials. No artistic experience is necessary. Not included: Bring your own mug, utensils, and plates and water bottle. Any personal materials, poems, photos, mementoes you might like to include in your art creation. You will leave with a tangible, personal and meaningful resource for your own self-care. There will be periods of silence for creating, meditation and reflection.

Facilitators Supria Karmakar, Artist/Social Worker & Jill Davey, Meditation Teacher.

Some art techniques and instruction can be provided; meditation guidance will be provided, beginners welcome.

Cost: $145 Limited spots. A work/subsidy space is available.
