Last Acts of Kindness: Care and Compassion at the End of Life Weekend Workshop

3/13/20 UPDATE: We regret to inform you that this workshop has been cancelled.

A weekend workshop for anyone who wishes to foster confidence and resiliency as we care for
our friends, our selves, our families, and community at the end of life. Appropriate for professional and family caregivers, as well as for “care-receivers”

We all will be in positions to be “end of life doulas” at some time--assisting friends and loved ones in the dying process. This workshop will prepare us to show up at the bedsides of the dying—using the tenets of Palliative Care: to help relieve suffering physically, emotionally, spiritually, psychologically.

Friday, April 3, - Sunday, April 5
