TLC Supporting the dying with awareness
Please see article "Towards theUnknown region" in section articles and links
I offer a course in practical (non medical, non denominational) TLC (tender loving care) for those accompanying or visiting someone who is dying. At a time of emotional distress it can be very helpful to be already equipped with an understanding of the universal stages in dying and how best to offer support. This knowledge may also act as a map to help navigate our own feelings about death. We look at how listening skills and simple acts of kindness can make a great difference to a dying person. As well as times for quiet reflection there is space in the workshop for lightness and laughter. Importantly - there will be cake!
