Presence and Self-Compassion Urban Retreat for Therapists, Educators and Caregivers: Mindful Drumming, Photography and Meditation

Offering compassionate care and teaching can be immensely rewarding, yet emotionally demanding for helping professionals, caregivers, and educators. Sustained attention and care of others, as a therapist, educator, parent or child of aging parents, without a balance of compassion and care for self, can lead to burn-out and exhaustion.

This urban retreat provides an opportunity for self-care, restoration and connection. Innovative tools for cultivating presence, such as drumming, photography, mindfulness and self-compassion will be practiced together. These tools provide creative and playful ways to cultivate presence and self-compassion.

With the cultivation of presence and self-compassion, we can develop greater trust in our ability to move through work and life challenges with greater ease, while feeling energized, calm, and centered. This can help us to return to our work and care of others, with greater attention, energy, and purpose, while balancing care for ourselves.

What others have said about Shari’s Mindful Drumming and Photography Retreat:

“The workshop was a pretty unique and exciting experience for me.”

“Incredible”“(The) experience of various sounds helping me be more in touch with myself, and to “stay with myself” moment by moment.”

“I’m still thinking about the workshop every day. I’m making a bigger effort to be mindful. ”

” (An) experience of fun and playfulness and enjoyment throughout the whole workshop, while also experiencing community with others and a deepening and healing within myself.”

” (The) photography process helped me notice much more of the “right now”; to see what I would otherwise have completely “not seen”; to experience “being very present” and feeling “oneness” with what I was observing
