Developing the therapeutic capacity required of compassionate caregiving and holistic healing interventions requires contemplative educational strategies grounded in self care.

The purpose of these programs is to :

  • nurture a community of nurses and nurse educators who practice mindfulness based / contemplative self-care practices for their personal wellbeing and
  • Support implementation of mindfulness based / contemplative educational practices in academic curricula and staff development programs.

Each workshop follows a similar structure approximately 10 minutes of content/ research review; 20 minutes of self-care practice/ exercise(s) and 45 minutes for discussion and dialogue about your self-care progress.  Resource handouts will be provided.
