Art of Living & Dying Workshop Series
Module 4 Workshop: Transforming Spiritual Suffering
This is the fourth of four modules 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 take previous courses to a deeper level of personal integration. The meaning of life and death, compassion, and caring are explored in a nurturing environment. Based on lessons that the dying teach the living, this retreat format allows for ample reflection on the meaning of end-of-life ministry. Exercises include meditation, life-priorities evaluation, and self-care skills for maintaining a centered, professional presence.
What you can expect from this programme:
-Study and some personal experience with some of the different principles and techniques of ‘energy work’ by using bio-feedback mechanisms as a means of assisting a patient’s state of physical and emotional well-being.
-Experimentation with two guided visualisations formats for the ‘healing of memories.’
