Janki Foundation One Day Event: Shining Light on Death

14/07/2018 10:00 - 16:30

One day event supporting healthcare professionals - especially for those in the caring professions, palliative care and hospice workers, GPs, Chaplains, undertakers, grief counsellors and those who are caring for dying friends or family.

In the presence of someone who is nearing the end of their life, not knowing what to say or do can be daunting, frightening or even embarrassing. There is a natural concern about not wanting to offend or cause pain by saying the ‘wrong’ thing.  But being with someone who is dying can also be experienced as the greatest privilege of all. Perhaps we should think less about what to say or do and more about how to practise the particular qualities of being gracefully present and respectful. It may be that just by ‘holding the space’ we’re doing enough, and the basic requirement for that is the capacity to be compassionately human-- the greatest enabler of all.

Shining Light on Death is concerned with the spiritual aspects of care - the role of acceptance, kindness, humility and compassion as well as consideration and respect for the sense of the sacred. By the end of the event participants will have explored a range of responses when in the presence of someone who is dying.

Speakers include: Dr Peter Fenwick, Ann Yeomans and Sister Jayanti.
MC: Dr Sarah Eagger

The day will be interwoven with poetry, reflections and songs by Lucinda Drayton.

Registrations for the event are now closed.
