Caring Community invites us to explore how all of us are inter-connected & dependant. Together we reflect on how we exist in a network of relationship a 'MWe' (Daniel Siegel) . Caring is essentially relevant to everyone, a vital life skill that binds community and defines our humanity.
All of us at some point in our lives depend on being held and cared for. This may be because we an infant, new parent, experiencing a crisis of some kind, illness or elderly. We are all cared for at some point and in turn care.
Functioning as a caring community builds creativity, engagement, resilience and resourcefulness within workplaces,
organisations and neighbourhoods.
In this training we look at what life skills are needed to build healthy caring communities.
We draw from mindfulness, compassion, empathy, neuroscience research and lay a roadmap for practice and social integration.
This training can be adapted the needs of different organisations, workplaces & community groups & includes the C.A.R.E ACTION PLAN
