Spirituality, Hope, and the End of Life
Facilitator: Patrick Gibbons
Saturday, July 10 | 10am – 1pm | In-person event | $20 / $25
This presentation will focus on the findings of medical research in the areas of spirituality and hope at the end of life. The participants will be invited to have a conversation between these research findings and their own understanding of spirituality and hope.
Examples will be provided by Patrick from his extensive hospice experience. Participants will be invited to share their experiences as well.
Reflection and discussion questions will be provided. Achieve a greater personal understanding of spirituality and hope, especially as they might affect the end of life. Participants will be given time for reflection, sharing, and discussion.
Sample discussion questions include:
How do I define spirituality?
What are the main resources for my spirituality?
How does my spirituality help me face my own mortality?
Feedback from participants of Patrick's previous programs:
"I was so glad to have the space created by this memorial/ remembrance service. Experiencing loss during this time of increased isolation due to the pandemic has further complicated already painful circumstances. Patrick Gibbon's skill in facilitating was evident, even in a virtual format; I felt the group was inclusive, calm, accepting, and supportive. The opportunity to grieve with others, even remotely, is something that I've been sorely missing."
"Enjoyed the ability to express from my heart and feel heard and safe."
"Patrick Gibbons’ “Virtual Remembrance Service” was food for the soul. Sharing our loss/es with attendees from this pandemic was the beginning of the healing process for many of us. I highly recommend this program along with all of Patrick’s programs. His humility, knowledge of material, and gentle and loving demeanor is a blessing in its own right. Thank you, Shadybrook, for bringing Patrick to us. "
