  • Buddhist Chaplaincy Workshop – Grief and Loss: Bringing an Open Heart to Helping Others
    6:30 PM-5:00 PM
    2018.11.16-2018.11.17

    Register on Eventbrite.

    Learn and practice skillful means of applying Buddhist teachings to guide clients through issues of grief and loss. We will delve into the Four Noble Abodes (loving kindness, compassion, gladness, and equanimity), use the RAIN method of self-investigation as we look into the shadow areas of our own losses, and track our own feelings and body sensations to use while working with others. The use of ritual in the grief process will also be shared. Please bring any case studies, questions, or troubling experiences being with people who are grieving and dying.

    The class meets on Friday, Nov. 16, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., and Saturday, Nov. 17, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

    Ellen Hufschmidt, MA, Chaplain, Reiki Master Healer, is an experienced senior meditator. Currently she volunteers at Common Ground Meditation Center as a facilitator for a Couples Communications small group, Community Conversations on grief and loss, and the Annual Day of Remembrance. Ellen has recently completed 10 years as a Hospice Grief Counselor in Duluth, Minnesota. She consults and counsels under Rites of Change: Moving through transitions well.
