Full course description

Tuesday, February 9, 2021 | 5:30 - 7:00pm (EST)-- Fully Online Workshop


Burnout (including both meaning burnout and caring burnout) with all its multidimensional symptoms (such as fatigue, frustration, disengagement, stress, helplessness, hopelessness, emotional drain, and cynicism) is an opportunity for growth on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels. 

This workshop creates a space to explore our relationship to “burnout” in professional settings, and the values that brought us into our different professions. Through finding growth even in the face of stress, we are called and challenged to look in a new way at our own life: to move from “being stuck” to becoming creative; from being conditioned to becoming masters of our personal lives. The crucial question remains: Who do I want to become, in order to better serve others?

Timeline and Requirements:

This workshop will take place on Tuesday, February 9, 2021.  This workshop is presenter-led and is a fully online experience. This will be conducted synchronously online via Zoom from 5:30 pm-7:00 pm (EST). 

Fees & Policies:

Payment is due by credit card at registration. Registration closes February 9th at 5pm. Refunds will be granted only up to the time of the workshop. 

Care for the Whole Professional Series:

This workshop is part of the Care for the Whole Professional series. The Care for the Whole Professional series seeks to enact the Jesuit value of “cura personalis” to create a restorative space for professionals to better flourish. In addition to providing “Continuing Education” credits, we hope to provide a variety of restorative formats including retreat-like experiences and practical mindfulness-based education. We look forward to caring for you, so we may better care for others.
