Conscious Service: Ten Ways to Reclaim Your Calling, Move beyond Burnout, and Make a Difference without Sacrificing Yourself will help all types of service providers understand and move beyond burnout and compassion fatigue while discovering a renewed energy for serving others. Each of us can learn how to thrive and find fulfillment in our vocations as we make a positive difference in our homes, workplaces, and communities.

Using everyday examples, personal stories, and illuminating questions, Elizabeth Bishop invites us to reimagine how we think about, train for, and embody service. Blurring the line between the traditional and the alternative with expertly chosen spiritual and self-help insights, Conscious Service: Ten Ways to Reclaim Your Calling, Move beyond Burnout, and Make a Difference without Sacrificing Yourself offers pragmatic and inspiring guidance for service providers and the people responsible for the systems and structures through which service is delivered. Even if serving others isn't the core focus of their vocation, listeners will discover keys to avoiding compassion fatigue, feeling better, living with purpose, and contributing with impact.
