Learn how to "be" with your dying congregants and their communities
30 min30 minutes
Conscious dying informs conscious living. How can living "consciously" using the parameters of what our faith traditions offer us during our dying time? Conscious Communication is a several pronged approach to bearing witness to both suffering and celebration in our faith communities. Learn how to listen without having to provide an answer. Learn how to be in solidarity with someone without saying a word. Learn how to forge a connection that engages the Sacred Other--by whatever name your tradition uses--through simple human interaction. Most of all, learn how to employ your spiritual acumen in the caring of souls in times of grave illness, dying, and death.
For me, I have found that the best part of Conscious Communication is the ability to apply this skill to many other circumstances beyond the deathbed.
