2022 Star Island Update

NASW NH 12 Category A CEU’s #3281

Have you ever thought, “I am a caring clinician, but I’m feeling tired and run down, even exhausted?” Maybe you just feel that you and your clients would benefit from learning some effective compassion skills. Certainly, the world today needs compassionate presence more than ever!

Join us for three days on beautiful Star Island to enliven your compassionate heart, mind and body!

Cultivate compassion for yourself and for your clients. Improve well- being, resilience, connection with others, and therapeutic relationships. Learn compassion skills and practices of lovingkindness, forgiveness, and gratitude that you can teach your clients. We will explore compassion practices from both eastern philosophical and western psychological perspectives, ranging from qigong and yoga to mindfulness and positive psychology.

Currently neuroscience is confirming the efficacy of compassion for well- being, resilience, and preventing burnout. Compassion practices help you feel more connected to and accepting of other human beings.
