The 2013 Professional Carers Restorative Self Care Retreat August 29, 2013

Filed under: Uncategorized — insidearttherapy @ 5:19 pm

“Self Care is never a selfish act — it is simply good stewardship of the only gift I have,  the gift I was put on  earth to offer to others. Anytime we can listen to true self,  and  give it the care it requires, we do so not only for ourselves, but for the many others  whose lives we touch.”    Parker Palmer, author of “Let Your Life Speak”

Come and join us for two and a half days of best practice in the helping and caring professions.  The retreat aims to take people on a journey through a reflective self assessment, along with self-nurturing elements to assist people back to the core of why they originally engaged in this type of work.  It builds progressively over the weekend, and you will be joined by other people from a variety of helping and caring professions, who will probably share some of the same challenges that you have had in regards to self-care.  I really see the key to longevity in such professions as the ability to engage in ongoing and nurturing self care practices.

The structure of the weekend will include arts based activities, (where no art skills are required at all), story-telling and creativity, along with sharing of experiences and some treats.  On top of this, you will be fed and nurtured, and you will be absolved from any dish-washing or cooking responsibilities for the whole weekend. Sound good?  Check out the webpage at
