Limited Capacity filling up

Watching someone die takes presence. As a caregiver you can't add your suffering to the dying person's suffering. For these reasons, the task is a difficult one. We want to save our beloveds but at the same time, we know we can’t. Transformation and healing are found when we have others who are willing to enter that space alongside us. Through multiple poetry prompts, song, film, discussion and a look at the philosophy of aging, this workshop will help us to find and articulate our blessings as well as our losses.
