Dying Healed Workshop. Sat. April 22nd. Make Time for Life.
Make Time for Life™ is a national campaign intended to bring attention to the orientation program for volunteering in end of life care: The Dying Healed Program.
Dying Healed is a concept that explains how a person can pass from this life healed, not physically, but mentally, emotionally and spiritually. It is not possible to heal all the pains that accompany disease and terminal illness, but we can help those suffering to experience healing of a deeper kind.
The purpose of the Dying Healed program is to give volunteers confidence that their presence at the bedside of a lonely or dying person is an invaluable service.
This program is intended to be a preparatory training.
This workshop will be held in Vancouver.
This event will help everyone understand how to spend time with vulnerable people. With greater confidence you'll be able to seek volunteer opportunities at hospitals, long term care facilities, or parish based groups. Now more than ever, we can help foster a culture that is more open to life.
