Nurses have met the challenges of the pandemic with competence, compassion and sorrow. The toll will likely be unknown for some time. This retreat offers nurses working on the front lines an opportunity to pause, reflect and nurture their bodies, minds and hearts.

Together we will explore the burdens and gifts that have arisen during the pan­demic and beyond. Using movement, music and reflective practice we will ex­plore what we are carrying, what no longer serves and how we can find whole­ness among the broken pieces. Participants will apply skills and tools that can be used in everyday practice to meet inevitable challenges of their work.

Wear comfortable clothes and have paper, pen, (and colored pencils/markers if you want) available during the retreat.
