Event description

Description

Drawn from the writings of Henri Nouwen, this retreat day will help caregivers identify both the challenges and the gifts of caregiving, while learning new spiritual practices and techniques to sustain long-term self-care.

If you are a professional or at-home caregiver, you know how challenging and exhausting it can be to support those with intensive or chronic care needs. Caregivers need care too. That’s why the Henri Nouwen Society is pleased to present a one-day retreat designed for active caregivers in need of spiritual encouragement and community support.

Courage for Caregivers addresses the needs of people in caregiving roles, professionals as well as those who find themselves caring for high needs family members or friends.

In partnership with Arlington Woods Free Methodist Church in Ottawa, this retreat will be held in an environment of hospitality and care in a venue that backs on to a beautiful green space with easy access.

Led by Michelle O'Rourke, RN, with a Master of Arts in Pastoral Ministry and a professional background in palliative care. Michelle is the author of Befriending Death:Henri Nouwen and a Spirituality of Dying as well as Embracing the End of Life: Help for those Who Accompany the Dying.
