Essential Practices in Spiritual Companionship
Presence Compassion Transcendence
6th, 7th, & 8th December 2019
This non-residential weekend course with Tew Bunnag is about finding what is needed in spiritual companionship as we look after ourselves and those who are at the end of life. It is open primarily to those who are directly involved in palliative care in the knowledge that precious little time is available for health care professionals to tend to their own needs.
This training weekend will offer simple and easily remembered tools and resources for the spiritual aspects of end of life care. Although this course is offered as a non-residential weekend, accommodation is available for those coming out of county or wishing to benefit from the restorative environment of Roselidden. The objectives are to understand the role and function of spiritual companionship, and to explore different ways of accompanying one another at the end of life.
What tools and resources can we use in spiritual companionship at the end of life?
How can we best serve our spiritual needs in the dying process?
How can we promote a social awareness which helps people to experience a good death?
How can we integrate spiritual wellbeing within our personal, professional and family framework?
There are three areas through which we connect with the world – the physical body, the mind, and the emotions. Keeping a wholesome balance between all three is the ongoing task of looking after ourselves. When one, or more, becomes overworked we must help ourselves to rebalance and maintain an equilibrium without draining our own reserves.
