COUNCIL FOR CAREGIVERS
Calling all nurses, therapists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, physicians,
or anyone caring for a chronically ill family member.

Council for Caregivers

What is council?
Council is a skillful means of gathering together in a circle, with the intention to listen from the heart, speak from the heart, and develop a sense of community that in many ways is lacking in today’s busy healthcare environment. Mindfulness and attunement to one’s own body are essential skills for those of us who, either professionally or in our personal lives, care for others.

Ann Murray and Shana Berger offer a council group for caregivers at Bodysattva studio in Thousand Oaks. Join us for four sessions as we introduce the practice of council, exploring how it can benefit each of us, and by extension, the people we care for.

When: Sundays, 5:30-7 PM on March 26th April 9th, 23rd, 30th

Cost: Donation based and will be taken at class. Register for free here.

Please email Ann Murray for more information and to register. Group size limited to 15 participants.

Ann Murray

Facilitator:

Ann Murray is a physician, practicing as a hospitalist and palliative care physician at Los Robles, who has participated in or facilitated Council training workshops in Auschwitz, Rwanda, Santa Fe, Los Angeles, Salinas Valley State Prison, Ojai, and Greyston Foundation in Yonkers, NY. Ann obtained her MD from Loyola University Chicago, then served in the US Navy in Portsmouth and then in Charleston, SC where she was an early innovator in the field of Hospitalist medicine in the late 1990’s. A life-long learner and lover of “important talk”, Ann’s interest in end of life care as well as a concern over the emotional and moral well-being of her fellow clinicians led her to a 2 year chaplaincy program at Upaya Zen Center in Santa Fe, NM. It was there that she was introduced to the practice of council by her life-partner Jared, and together they travel around the world engaging with people suffering the aftermath of genocide. Ann has seen first-hand the healing effects of council practice, and is committed to finding ways in which it can address the syndromes of burn-out and isolation felt within the healthcare system. Ann is a steward of the Zen Peacemakers Order, mother of three grown children, and recent neophyte in growing bonsai.
