What you'll learn in this health class:

Presence with Patients in Non-Verbal & Diverse States of Awareness

Most people experience a nonverbal, coma-like state before death, yet all too often medical workers, even hospice workers and family, withdraw attentive presence when a patient enters silence. Perhaps we wonder if they know we are there. Perhaps we are uncomfortable.


In this workshop, we will discuss what work and research with the non-communicative has taught us about their needs. How can we be both fearless and sensitive in service to the dying? Together we will practice “finding” this state within ourselves and being present with another as we explore the jewels within the silence. We will also look at caregiver burnout and the essential nature of compassion.

Students will be invited to inquire directly into their own process with presence to people in trauma or altered states of consciousness, bringing questions and personal reflections forward for discussion and integration.

Note: This program will be offered online. Sessions of all our online programs will be recorded and shared with registrants after each is completed for 90 days.
