This online Wellness Morning Retreat is Mindfully designed for Nurses & Midwives experiencing stress from working in unprecedented times in hospitals & other clinical settings. These practices will support nurses in minimising compassion fatigue while nourish and nurture their Body, Mind, and Spirit.
