"This course made me realize that there are other people who are experiencing the same feelings as I am, and that the negative feelings are normal."--- one recent Mindful Family Caregiver participant.

Zen Hospice Project is honored to announce a new offering Mindful Caregiver Education for Family Caregivers. In our thirty years of supporting individuals with serious illness, we have witnessed family caregivers tirelessly supporting their loved ones. We understand that the beauty of caregiving is also accompanied with exhaustion and anxiety, which often erode family caregivers’ well-being.

Fortunately, there are proven methods to enhance caregivers’ well-being that will strengthen them as they continue providing supportive care—with less stress, depression, and fear. Our program teaches practices that will help family caregivers maintain their health, reinforce their courage, and sustain their energy.

This series will be offered through a variety of different formats to suit the busy schedules of family caregivers. In-person sessions will also be complemented by free, online support sessions.

This course will focus on:

  • Being Present with Discomfort and Suffering
  • Preparing for End of Life
  • Creating a Meaningful Plan for Self-Care
  • Maintaining Healthy Boundaries
  • Mindful Communication
As a result of taking this class, you should experience:
  • More emotional and spiritual preparedness navigating through end-of-life
  • Practical ways to communicate more effectively with your loved one and family members
  • New ways to help your love one cope with their situation and/or suffering
  • Improvement in your own well-being
  • Less exhaustion throughout caregiving
More Mindful Family Caregiver participants share their own experience:

"The Mindful Family Caregiver Series has helped me experience being in the moment and in my body... to calm down when I’m
stressed and be aware of my breath."

"Your teachings allowed me to feel calmer. It has made me think about the importance of self-care and to implement a plan around it."

The fee for the Mindful Family Caregiver Series is $300.  Scholarships are available for those who qualify. Zen Hospice Project is offering a limited time discounted registration fee of only $150.
