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.

Chiron’s Way: Lessons and Gifts from the Wounded Healer

September 18-19, 2021

The teachings from the mythological centaur Chiron, known as the wounded healer, are perhaps more timely than ever, given what we are currently experiencing as, what he might call, a collective wound. In this beautiful experiential weekend, Dr. Sharon Forrest along with Sandra Wallin and the Chiron’s Way herd, invite you to journey with them into the Healing Sanctuary of the Centaur’s Cave to… 
  • mine the wisdom in the depths of our wounds,
  • find beauty in the places we’ve been broken,
  • discover the purpose of the bumps and jostles we’ve encountered while making our way in the world,
  • embody peace and serenity while in the company of horses
  • create a healing-horse talisman to take with you on your journey
By working through and finding these strengths, every life we touch benefits by example. This is true heroism and one of the wounded healer’s greatest gifts.

Heart Centered Horsemanship

This two-day workshop explores the horse-human partnership in therapeutic and learning environments. Through experiential exercises and thoughtful discussion, we seek to understand the evolving power dynamics within this relationship. What does it mean to co-teach with a 1000lb sentient being? How is it for horses to work as equals with those that historically have considered them solely as tools of the trade? Core topics include: ethical standards, safety, boundaries, leadership, communication, and authentic representation of our equine partners—how do we provide them with a voice that speaks to their physical, emotional, and mental needs?

Hosted by Carla Webb, Abbotsford BC
