  mPEAK for EFW

September 26 – November 14, 2022

 Are you looking for a meaningful way to complete Personal Growth Hours or fulfill your Updating Hours? Consider the mPEAK (Mindfulness) Program for EFW. 

No matter your experience level, it’s normal to have habits, belief systems and reactions that get in your way. These forms of “interference” can look like perfectionism, comparison, lack of confidence, never feeling like enough, fear, and feeling like you always need to do more or be more.

This cutting-edge mindfulness training program is designed to support you as you explore what gets in your way and learn simple tools and techniques to guide you towards your full potential.

Building Resilience and Empowerment: A Professional Development Workshop for Nurses

May 19, 2022 Grande Pre, Nova Scotia

Dragonfly Meadows welcomes you to
rest and re-charge in this one-day professional development workshop for RN’s and LPN’s. Many nurses feel that something is “wrong” but they don’t know what it is…. we invite you to spend the day and let our horses help you explore the challenges of being a professional caregiver in a safe and inspiring environment.

You will walk away:

* Understanding how compassion fatigue, burnout, vicarious trauma, and moral injury impact your work relationships and your home life.

* With a complete self-care inventory and knowing your barriers to self-care.

*Skills to balance work and home as we look at mindfulness, boundaries, gratitude, and being cared for ourselves.  

*Understanding  the ProQOL (professional quality of life inventory). The ProQOL is the most used measure of the negative and positive effects of helping others who experience suffering and trauma

You will discover you are not alone in your struggles for work-life balance or dealing with a difficult work environment. Seats are limited to 6. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

All exercises with the horses are done on the ground and previous horse experience is not required.
