Let's use our energy, hearts and minds to bring forward the best of ourselves in difficult situations.
Coming Sunday, September 19, 2021: Would you like to cut through noise and worry to focus on what matters with more joy? Discover a more joyful vision and stay sane as we launch into a lively season of change. Join me for this "Joyful Vision" event on Sunday, September 19, 1:30-4:00 p.m., sign-up and connect at https://www.janmarieerickson.com/connect/
Caregiving calls and sends us in a myriad of directions. When things feel out of control, this is one of my “go to” methods to focus, calm and energize; to plant seeds of happiness; and to lighten my way forward with key sustaining elements. Discover your individual views of joy as we examine a way forward with a vision board.
Sunday, September 19, 1:30-4:00 pm Joyful Vision live on Zoom sign up on the connect page for this first-time complementary session and receive email links to the event and materials list.
Are you taking care of parents, spouses and friends living with significant brain changes? It sounds natural and we want to ease their way. Is it simple to care and love? Yes! Is it easy to carry out? Not in my experience. However, we can do it. Navigating this new world brings paradox into full light-it's difficult and easy, discouraging and hopeful, arduous and enlightening. Let's enliven our lives through caregiving as we are asked to change and respond with each new phase.
You can do this--let's get started!
Schedule an free, introductory conversation. Leave a voicemail so I may return your call:
All caregivers, professional and family members, are showing up to care for elders AND at the same time we are living our lives. I resonated with what Bill Murray once said in an interview, “be your best at being you because it feels like home”. How might one carry out our life purposes while caregiving? What strategies work to "be you" in this situation? Which methods allow you to surf this rollercoaster of caring and living meaningfully?
I could never have imagined the time, roadblocks, downright weird rules, and chaos of emotions in the years we’ve cared for my Mom. If you’re like our family, our situation contains the spectrum of change--from vibrant living to big loss and grief. Meanings of existence are brought to the forefront and we are grappling with and for them. Let's create new ways to care for our loved ones within institutions (not made for innovation), find the ease in dis-ease and meaning in life as they experience new realms. Develop methods that allow for experience and research to inform our practices and create impactful living.
Join us! You’re the one we've been waiting for. Let’s design an event for you and your team. Please leave a voicemail so I may return your call: (612) 402-7906
I am called to lead, as Brene Brown stated, wholeheartedly! Discover your way to care meaningfully.
