Friday, December 8, 2017, 3:00 AM

***NEW DATES - December 7-10, 2017*** A conference exploring how contemplative practices enrich and improve the challenges of aging and dying wisely. *CONTINUING EDUCATION HOURS AVAILABLE* FOR AN ADDITIONAL $22 FEE.   If you are interested, this option will appear above the Pay Now button on the order page, be sure to add it when you check out. As we inevitably face the personal, collective and institutional challenges of living and dying, patients, families, and healthcare professionals are exploring and putting into action new ways of understanding the value of contemplative care. Questions that will be addressed during the event will include:  How can we better understand aging and dying?  How can contemplative practices like mindfulness help us care for ourselves in any situation?  What systems of care and community are emerging that can offer us holistic approaches to aging and dying? LEARN MORE Conference Presenters & Schedule Updated Regularly on our website. Keynote presentations, panel discussions, and workshops will address three themes during the conference: Contemplative Caring for Self & Other – this theme will address how contemplative approaches to clinical practice, modalities and outcomes address experiences of aging and end of life - for individuals as well as their families and caregivers Structuring Systems of Care - here we will consider age collectively - through healthcare institutions and intentional communities, as well as how ethics and insurance may influence decisions, quality of life and wholeness Creative Supports for Living & Dying - the arts, music, and embodiment practices have a unique role in bringing support, meaning, and sometimes closure, to diverse and challenging life experiences.
