As a doctor, nurse, aide, or social worker in pastoral care or engaged in any aspect of healthcare, you give from a COMPASSIONATE HEART!   Now, at the edge of burnout―or stuck in it—remember the last phrase of the golden rule, to “love your neighbor as yourself.”

Dive into a process of self-care, dwell, and let your own inner spirit be refreshed and renewed. Gather with others, or by yourself, and enter into a space of silence and safety, opening yourself to compassionate care. Led by Sister Sara Dwyer, ASC, Director of the Washington Retreat House, she will guide retreatants through the day’s activities and be available for individual conversations.

Each Compassionate Heart box includes three specially curated reflections for interior contemplation to engage your heart, mind, and soul.
