Cultivating Compassion in a World on Fire:  An Intensive Retreat for Mental Health Professionals and Caregivers

with Bill Morgan PsyD and Susan Morgan MSN, RN, CS

October 8-12 (Thursday PM to Monday AM)

Seismic shifts catalyzed by a pandemic, racial violence, and the environmental crisis have changed the world. There is no going back; we must find our way forward.

What does upaya, skillful means, look like, during a time of unprecedented global upheaval? Right now, directed mindfulness practices, specifically compassion practices for the self, others and the world, can afford us the stability and heartfulness necessary to hold and navigate these challenging times. These practices can be a source of grounding and nourishment for the heart that is tired, frightened, angry, depressed, anxious, overwhelmed, or grieving.

Even in this digital medium our teaching will be experience-near, focusing on mindfulness practices that are relevant both personally and interpersonally, particularly in the delivery of accurate empathy and therapeutic presence.

Our time will be divided between short daily mindfulness meditation instructions followed by guided meditations, with periods of sitting, standing and walking meditation each day; small group discussions and Q&A. 

Between online meditation sessions, participants will be encouraged to minimize screen time and interactions with others to facilitate a deeper contemplative experience.

This retreat is designed specifically for therapists and caregivers who have previously worked with Bill and Susan. If you have not yet experienced their teaching and would like to attend, please email Bill at wdmorgan33@gmail.com before registering.
