Developing Compassion Identity in Your Life

Healthcare professionals often become “super-focused” on the demands of the daily journey with patients and their families. Without regular and routine reflection on personal and professional roots we run the risk of losing our identity, becoming detached from the seminal principles that drew us to be witnesses to the lives, the suffering and legacies of the patients we serve. These topics will help reacquaint you with the stories and journeys of the heroes and heroines who inspired so many hospice and healthcare professionals to be who we are today.

Understanding Grief and Bereavement

Grief as a normal and natural and highly individualized  reaction to the loss of a loved one; Bereavement is the time period in which the grieving person reacts to and begins to  integrate the loss. These workshops are designed to demystify, normalize and educate about the grieving process.

Deepening Spirituality

Spirituality is the aspect of humanity that refers to the way individuals seek and express meaning and purpose and the way they experience their connectedness to the moment, to self, to others, to nature, and to the significant or sacred. It is the art and practice of companioning others in the crisis moment, enabling and empowering the other to draw upon her/his own narrative to make meaning in the crisis moment.  These workshops are designed to highlight the role of spirituality in healing ourselves, our loved ones and those entrusted to our care.
