Art of Living & Dying Module 3: Responding to Spiritual Suffering
This is the third 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 of Module 3 experience and are mentored in a wide range of creative and effective psychospiritual tools for end of life care. The spectrum of practices includes art and music therapies, guided imagery, coma work, and how to create and offer healing rituals tailored to one’s individual spiritual beliefs. Holistic therapies are drawn from the world’s great spiritual traditions, particularly Celtic tradition, and are applied with contemporary scientific knowledge.
What you can expect from this programme:
-Experience three different styles of guided imagery that have a proven clinical track record for alleviating spiritual suffering
-Learn about and practice principles of coma therapy for use with people in states of altered consciousness
-Experimentation with one of several art therapy projects which can be applied to bed-bound individuals
-Study the acclaimed science-based research of Dr. Larry Dossey and Dr. Joan Borysenko on the effectiveness of ‘non-local’ prayer for healing
-Development of a practical rituals to be used in end-of-life care based on traditional and contemporary models
-Reflection on a Bereavement Model for ‘reconciling grief’ based on the work of Dr. Alan Wolfelt’s Center for Loss and Transition in Boulder, Colorado, USA

ONLINE PROGRAMME RECOMMENDATIONS & REQUIREMENTS
Every participant of Sacred Art of Living Community’s online programmes is required to have 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 programmes. 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 programme 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 programme.
We highly recommend, if at all possible, to join our online programmes 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.
