  A flyer will be added soon with more information!

Check out the  summary for the March Learning Circle:

Hemali Vora, our guest speaker, is a Death Duola and an expert holistic practitioner, intuitive energy healer, and a spiritual mentor. With over two decades of working in the healthcare field as a physical therapist, she has helped, coached, and guided hundreds of patients, and their families to deal with chronic illnesses, disabilities, and personal traumas.

During this Learning Circle participants will also learn how to:

  • 1.      Become more comfortable discussing issues of death and dying with clients that are anxious, depressed, and stressed by the death process.
  • 2.      Apply concepts of “Holding the Space” with clients that are grieving and dying to help lessen symptoms of anxiety, depression, and stress.
  • 3.      Help clients increase self-awareness of personal death attitudes.

Participants will also engage in a conversation on the importance of using a cultural formulation interview to learn client views of death and dying.
