This workshop hosted by Insight LA will focus on integrating spiritual practice with how we care for others. Healthcare professionals, educators, hospice workers, volunteers and family caregivers are most welcome.
Coping with the loss of someone or something we love is one of life’s biggest challenges. The grieving process can present a wide range of difficult and unexpected emotions including, shock, anger, disbelief, guilt and profound sadness. Using various tools such as sharing stories, writing, poetry, and ritual this online support group will provide an opportunity to gain perspective and engage with the grieving process in new ways.
Offered in a retreat format, we will explore contemplative care best practices and how it strengthens individual capacity for compassionate contemplative service. Our days will be interspersed with several periods of silent meditation, lectures by faculty, experiential exercises, writing and conversation.
