Mindful Presence: Compassionate Care for Self and Others
Being fully present to those in our lives with whom we care for, love, and interact can be a challenge, particularly in these stressful times. Compassionate care for self and others requires that we operate from a place of balance so that we can fully present to those with whom we interact.
This new, six-week workshop focuses on two parts of the mindful presence process: personal stress management and compassionate care. Each week we will explore an aspect of the Mindful Presence Model with hands-on practices designed to manage stress and, most importantly, develop the skills to be deeply compassionate to others in our lives.
This workshop is offered via Zoom jointly by: Whitney Senior Center and Central MN Council on Aging.
Dates: Mondays January 4 – February 8, 2021, 6pm – 7:30 pm.
