Authentic Presence Immersion – Retreat and Integration Training 2020 – Canceled


An 8-day retreat. This program can be taken as a stand alone course or as part of the Certificate in Contemplative End-of-Life Care Program.

Authentic Presence Immersion offers you the skills in the art of being authentically and compassionately present for seriously ill and dying patients. Far more than an academic training, the retreat and guided integration period offers you the unique opportunity to experience and immerse yourself in the principles and practices of contemplative care, and to connect with your sources of joy, purpose, well-being, and wholeness, while expanding your professional skills and knowledge in serving the dying.

The retreat is experiential, and will use a variety of learning modalities, including individual, group and interactive work, as well as lectures.
