Being with Dying, a Wksp with Pierre Zimmerman
This is a one-day special workshop for professional caregivers, family members and/or friends who are assisting people in their journey of catastrophic illness and transition in life towards death. The presentation will explore the beneficial ways to be present, how to serve people who are experiencing physical, emotional, cognitive, attentional, identity and dignity losses. Didactic lecture and experiential exercises will be intertwined during the workshop.
We will explore some of the obstacles and trouble spots in caregiving that prevent us from being present, discerning differences between helping & serving, and how to cultivate loving-kindness for oneself and non-referential compassion for others.
Fee: $30 per person
