It is with great pleasure to report that our first Caregiver's Respite Workshop was a success and you will read the response of one of our members in attendance. There were four attendees who were deeply invested in the process. Kind Essence of The Haven opened her doors to welcome our Heroes. She conducted a cleansing prayer/meditation period, which allowed us to Purge Our Negative Feelings, open up a space to fill with Positive, Healing energies. Heroes talked openly of their hopes, fears and feelings and then danced them away with Free Style yoga dance.
Heroes were then able to clear their heads/hearts through floor yoga poses followed by refreshments and discussion of what was just experienced. It was a very swift-moving 3 hour session. We didn't know where the time went. Sis. Kind, thank you for your lovingkindness and for opening your doors to us. It is an experience that was needed by all who attended.
NOTE FROM BEVERLY:
Good evening: Today, I had the profound pleasure of attending a Respite Workshop for Care Partners. The event was held at The Haven - 5702 Wynnefield Avenue and was facilitated by Kind Essence and Jean Kirkley. This event allowed me to release stress, connect with other care-partners, eat healthy food, STRETCH, cry and laugh in an emotionally safe environment. I am so very happy I was invited and attended.
