Many of us are providing unpaid health or supportive care to someone we love — an aging parent, a family member or child with a disability, or a spouse, partner or friend with an illness. These demanding personal roles cause some of us to hide our suffering from ourselves and others, taking a tremendous toll on our health and well-being.
Care for Caregivers brings us together to learn how to recognize our suffering. We will share self-care and soul care practices that can soothe and renew our hearts, bodies, and minds. 

Care for Professional Caregivers

Professional care of all kinds is incredibly demanding during the COVID pandemic. Whether you work in healthcare, behavioral health, teaching, or other helping professions, taking time for self-care, soul care, and conversation with peers can support your health and well-being. Join us on April 8 for our first meeting from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. on Zoom until we can resume in-person. Registration is required. The group will continue to meet on the second Thursday of each month. 

These classes are facilitated by Dana Essex, PhD, health psychologist, WCC Caring Congregation Minister and certified spiritual companion. Dana has had a 30-year career in healthcare. She has cared for several chronically ill family members and family caregivers. Contact Dana at or 612.716.8357.
