Spiritual distress is triggered when hope, meaning, or identity are threatened at end-of-life. It increases when we are unable to use the wisdom of grief to amplify love and honour the connection we have to each other. Distress, ironically, increases when we engage death directly, but diminishes quickly through the power of wise and compassionate presence. Practicing this with ourselves is as much a challenge as with those who are dying, and their loved ones. The quality of our presence will determine the outcome.
Through this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Identify spiritual distress
- Explore compassionate presence as a transformative intervention
- Learn how to work with other’s distress to explore what is most important to them at end-of-life
