In her book Take Good Care, Cynthia Orange talks about “lightning strikes” – those unforeseen times that can redefine our sense of normal. The role of the caregiver can be stressful enough during “normal” times; the challenge of caring for self and others is magnified one hundred-fold during a global pandemic. Isolation, COVID-compliance, uprooted and complex schedules can paralyze already overwhelmed caregivers. Join Cynthia in exploring ways to cultivate a foundation of compassionate care that will support us in those times when lightning strikes. Cynthia is an author, editor, and writing consultant. She and Rev. Janne Eller-Isaacs facilitate Unity’s Caregivers Group.
