This is the second of four workshops providing the historical and theoretical foundation for the Anamcara. Each of the study modules is grounded in the contemporary health care sciences and is inspired by the great spiritual traditions and collective wisdom learned from the dying.
Participants study in-depth the time-tested primary diagnoses of spiritual suffering: forgiveness, relatedness, meaning, and hope. Through a series of case studies as well as reflecting on personal experience, traditional and contemporary modes of inner healing are applied to pastoral practice. The result is an enhanced ability to recognize and celebrate the final gifts of growth and transformation revealed at the end of life.
What you can expect from this program:
-Experimentation with each of the four spiritual pain scales: hope, meaning, forgiveness, and relatedness pain.
-Examination of the relationship between ethical and religious-based decision making.
-Study of the current understanding of 'religious abuse' as a critical factor for some people in coming to peace at the end of life.
-Reflection on the correlation between the traditional stages of human development and the stages of faith development, especially as it impacts end-of-life care and bereavement issues.
-Define, compare, and contrast personal modes of pastoral practice with alternative modes of therapeutic presence.

ONLINE PROGRAM RECOMMENDATIONS & REQUIREMENTS
Every participant of Sacred Art of Living Community’s online programs is required to have an adequate internet connection and appropriate equipment for a Zoom meeting/webinar. This allows for each participant to be seen and heard by their fellow participants as well as the Leadership Team during our highly interactive programs. It is not allowed to simply attend a workshop anonymously (i.e. with muted video and audio).
Participants are also required to be present in an appropriate, stationary space with access to audio and visual privacy as needed. Driving or riding in a vehicle during a program is unsuitable to the integrity of the workshop and the quality of your experience and the experience of your fellow participants.
Full participation in these workshops is required. This includes participation in the interactive breakout sessions and small group exercises that are part of each program.
We highly recommend, if at all possible, to join our online programs with a laptop or desktop computer to allow for optimal viewing and participation. A working camera and microphone are also essential. In our experience iPads, Tablets, and smartphones tend to greatly inhibit the overall experience for participants.
