You’re a nurse, or
You’re an aged care professional, or
You’re a community care professional…
You have patients/clients that you see, day in and day out or you have looked after for months or even years…
You laugh together,
You share stories,
You know their loved one’s names,
You know their likes and dislikes,
You know their medical history,
You’ve talked about anything and everything,
They almost feel like family to you…
The challenge is…they’re dying…
Where do you fit?
How are you meant to feel?
Are you allowed to grieve as you would for a friend?
But you’re a professional.
How do you balance being professional and yet feeling at times that you just want to cry?
Are your relationships with these patients/clients acknowledged by your workplace?
When the patient/client dies, are you allowed to attend their funeral?
Is there any support from your workplace?
How do you navigate these experiences?
Do you get worn down by all of this?
How do you avoid burning out?
How do you avoid becoming de-sensitised?
Would you like support to not struggle with the emotions of this all so much?
Do you want help to balance being professional and honouring what you feel?
Would you like to be able to manage these situations within yourself?
Do you want to feel resilient?
If any of the above resonates with you, then this workshop might just be what you are looking for.
In my work with the dying, I see professionals like you struggling every day.
I hear your stories of your emotions and your relationships not being acknowledged, let alone honoured.
I hear you when you say that you don’t want to shut down how you feel as you love caring for those you serve, but it’s so hard when they die, because where do you fit?
This workshop will help you with this. It includes:
- What resilience is
- How you can strengthen your resilience
- Holding Sacred Space
At the end of this workshop, you will
Be able to explain what resilience is and why it’s important
Have techniques to help you strengthen/maintain your resilience
Be able to hold Sacred Space for your patients/client
This workshop is interactive in nature, it’s not a 3hr lecture presentation. There are group discussions, activities, videos, all with an underlying energy of personal development. If you prefer academic style presentations, this workshop might not be for you.
You will also get to experience the meditations that you get to keep.
Resilience doesn’t deny the struggle, the challenge, the stress, the heartbreak.
It acknowledges all of these emotions and believes that they are not permanent.
