A Mindful Approach to Nursing Care
Nurses Caring for Nurses

a mini-retreat for renewal and self-care
August 22nd, 8:00 – 11:00am (PST)  3 CEUs
What a time to be a Nurse! Whether dealing with the stress of being on the front lines or not having work, anxiety about protecting self and family, moral injury or guilt for not doing more, we are all impacted as we adjust to a changing paradigm. Many of us may be experiencing compassion fatigue or burn-out and searching for different ways to care for ourselves.

During this online retreat we will share mindfulness practices, such as guided meditation and mindful listening to steady the mind and support the heart.

Please join us in this opportunity to come together as nurses to share our hearts and draw on our collective wisdom in these wild and powerful times.

About Sacred Art of Nursing
Inspiration for the Sacred Art of Nursing was born out of our work together in the early days of Hospice care.  We had the opportunity to practice nursing in a way that honored the wisdom and dignity of patients and families to support peaceful life closure.  Sacred´in this context is meant to convey a deep respect for the mystery of life and death and has no religious affiliation.
Over the years we began to recognize a resonance between the Sacred Art of Nursing and the practice of mindfulness.  We identified the art of nursing as just as important as clinical skills.
We are passionate about supporting nurses in their extraordinary commitment to patient care. We created ‘The Sacred Art of Nursing’ to host workshops and retreats focused on Mindfulness for Nurses.  Our mission is to share evidence-based mindfulness practices to develop crucial skills to avoid emotional and physical depletion and to maintain a sense of personal balance. These skills are central to the healer’s art and vital to professional health and longevity.
 The Sacred Art of Nursing cultivates a mindful approach to nursing care that fosters:
 •    Respect for the dignity and integrity of both patient and nurse
•    Increased awareness and presence in daily interactions with patients and colleagues
•    Inner resources to meet the challenges and complexities in health care
•    A practice of self-care that replenishes body, mind, and spirit
•    Compassionate care to alleviate suffering

“Your work, goes down into death to be there with you to help.
Take deep refuge with that companion, beforehand.”  Rumi
