Tending Your Sacred Fire: Body, Mind, Spirit, and Humor
March 29 | 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Many of us start out burning with passion for our work. In time, if we don't tend our own "sacred fire", our passion grows dim and our spark of life feels dull. How do we do this work with hearts open and tend to ourselves with the same love and care we give to those we serve? During this workshop you will identify and experience ways to "tend your sacred fire" -- body, mind, spirit, humor. Have fun and come away refreshed and enlivened, with tools and ideas to support you in this work and to sue with the people you serve.
