Contemplative Caregiving: A Day-Long Skill-Building Retreat
Saturday, October 22
9:00 am - 4:00 pm
at the Seattle Betsuin Temple

The realities of old age, sickness and death touch each of our lives. When these events happen to us, we have the possibility of accepting them with wisdom and resilience. When they happen to our loved ones, we can learn to respond with skillful caregiving and compassionate presence.

Join us for a day long retreat that invites us to touch the reality of loss in our own lives and gives us the skills to meet these changes with effective response. We will engage in experiential activities, teachings and discussions designed to help us understand the losses of sickness and end of life and to develop skills necessary to accept and cope with these challenges, whether in our own lives or in the lives of others.

Who should attend:

* Professional caregivers such as physicians, nurses, social workers, spiritual care providers, and care aides.
* Those caring for friends or family members.
* People aspiring to express their spiritual practice through the care of others.
* Those seeking to ground themselves in their own experiences of illness, aging and death.

Retreat leader Jonathan Prescott is a Board Certified Clinical Chaplain and Pastoral Counselor and an ordained student of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh.

Co-sponsored by the Northwest Dharma Association. Cost: $25 plus dana.

Space will be limited. To register, visit
