Compassionate End-of-Life Care
An Introduction to the Contemplative Approach
On October 14-16, 2011, professional care givers and trained volunteers are invited to the Center for Wisdom and Compassion in Berne, NY
This intensive workshop with Kirsten Deleo , Ann Allegre and Pam Russell introduces key elements of the Center’s 5-month certificate program in the contemplative approach to care for the dying at the Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado. This course is an invaluable experience for anyone working or volunteering in end-of-life care.
This workshop will build essential competencies for providing compassionate service to the terminally ill. It offers a unique opportunity to explore our own understanding about death, it’s spiritual dimension, and how we relate to life and those we care for. The training brings together the best knowledge of the modern hospice and ancient wisdom as presented in The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying by Sogyal Rinpoche. It offers an integrated approach for professionals from diverse cultural and spiritual backgrounds.
The program fee is $295 with 15 CE’s are available.
