Heads Up for Fall 2012 Workshops ...

Hello, dear readers! I know it's early for fall photos but I want to give you a heads up about two great workshops I'll be offering in greater Vancouver this fall. Do mark your calendars now and, when I return from vacation in early August, I will have registration forms available for everyone who would like to attend.

1.  Caring On Empty: Creative Tools for Compassion Fatigue Transformation & Resilience - A Workshop for Family Caregivers, Foster Parents & Home Share Providers
This is a one-day special version of Caring On Empty for those of you who provide care in your home for family members or others. (Also welcome are family caregivers whose care recipients are currently living in a facility.) 
Date:  Friday, October 19, 2012  9:00 - 3:30
Location:  Accent Inn - Burnaby (1 blk south of Lougheed and Boundary)
Cost:  $139  (Includes HST, beverage breaks, lunch, handouts & book draw)

2.  The Enneagram for Everyone: An Introduction for Beginners
This entertaining and informative 1 1/2 day workshop will introduce the Enneagram (see the description on the column to the left) to adults interested in an adventure of self-discovery, an adventure that can lead to greater self acceptance, understanding and acceptance of others, compassion for others' world views, and a direction for your personal growth.
The workshop will help you identify your personality type and begin a personal growth plan that will expand and enrich your self care.
(**Note:  This fall, in response to requests to include friends or family in the workshop, this workshop will be free-standing, without the prerequisite of a Caring On Empty workshop).
Date:  Friday November 16   7:00 - 9:00 pm  - and -
                     Saturday November 17   9:00 - 4:00
Location:  Accent Inn - Burnaby  (1 blk south of Lougheed and Boundary)
Cost: $ 179  (Includes HST, beverage breaks, lunch Saturday, handouts and text)

3.  For those waiting for the next Caring On Empty Workshop for Helping Professionals, I will be experimenting, this fall, with offering the workshop through Jack Hirose and Associates.
The workshop will be held at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Richmond, BC, on Friday December 7th.   Registration is through Jack Hirose and Associates.

That's it for now. I hope you all find a way to enjoy a restful and refreshing break this summer. More workshop information on my return from Ontario in the first full week in August.
