In-depth training in unique caregiving skills.

Two-day seminar for acute and sub-acute hospital staff, residential aged care facility staff, primary care health professionals and trained volunteers seeking to enhance clinical skills.

Responding effectively to the needs of patients and clients is an on-going professional and deeply personal challenge.  Drawing on Sogyal Rinpoche’s groundbreaking book, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, this Compassion and Presence seminar provides in-depth training in unique skills, such as contemplative listening, which will support you in your work and life.  Scientific research has shown that the skills of meditation and compassion effectively enhance the care we offer.  As part of professional self-care, they are also a powerful antidote to compassion fatigue, exhaustion and burnout.
