Roshi Joan Halifax, PhD, has been training healthcare professionals for over 35 years with skills to sustain themselves in the face of distress. First developed as a protocol and intervention for frontline nurses, the G.R.A.C.E. process will give participants insights in developing an “embodied compassion,” from the lens of neuroscience, social psychology, ethics, and mindfulness practice. This scientifically grounded and experiential day of training operationalizes compassion as part of our everyday experience in mediating the challenges and suffering present in caring for those ill or dying. As individuals and as healthcare and end-of-life communities, our work must include healthy strategies in sustaining our well being; Roshi Joan’s presence and wisdom supports us in resourcing resiliency where we can flourish as we offer our caring compassionately.
