ENRICHING THE LIVES OF CAREGIVERS
Our purpose is to develop highly compassionate, skilled caregivers with a deep understanding of the needs of those in marginalized communities.
We serve professional and personal caregivers through engaging training courses and self-care events.
Training focuses on topics including cultural sensitivity and techniques to avoid compassion fatigue.
Tara Rynders, MFA, BSN, BA, RN-BC
Join nurse, dancer, and creative caregiver Tara Rynders, MFA, BSN, BA, RN-BC as she guides you through an interactive, multimedia experience of the art and science of caring for others and yourself. As a truth-teller and disrupter, Rynders embraces vulnerability, confession, grief and failure as means to end burnout and racism at the bedside, which acutely impacts those we care for. Drawing from her experience creating theatrical performances in hospital settings and intimate arts and play-based workshops for nurses, Rynders harnesses her passion for nursing and the arts to collectively honor our shared humanity by creating a culture of caregiving nested in curiosity, creativity, and joy. This presentation is an immersive invitation to care for oneself through truth-telling, self-compassion, creative expression, and ultimately, the freedom to celebrate pleasure.
