EvergreenHealth and Sacred Art of Living are hosting a community workshop on Friday, Sept. 15 and Saturday, Sept. 16 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the EvergreenHealth Medical Center in Kirkland.

Bend, Oregon-based Sacred Art of Living is a non-profit Institute for Caregiver Education and Spiritual Formation that supports all people working in the helping and healing professions. The

Sacred Art of Living & Dying workshops offer a creative blend of content-oriented presentations, personal reflection, group processes and sacred ritual.

In Unit 1: Understanding Spiritual Pain, participants learn about the rich cultural history and clinically sound practices for detecting and alleviating spiritual and emotional distress at the end of life. The two-day program creates a retreat-like environment and is designed to offer several things.

Participants will receive training in practical and clinically-sound practices to alleviate spiritual and emotional distress at the end of life and strong grounding in the rich monastic history of spiritual caregiving and practice.

Additionally the program offers proven results to relieve physical and spiritual pain and the voluntary reduction of analgesics at the end of life.

Participants will also gain experience with valuable tools for addressing death anxiety, which affects not only the dying person but also family, friends and other caregivers and education about bereavement care and caring for the caregiver, helping to avoid costly burnout for staff and volunteers.

This event costs $395.00 for community members, and $125.00 for EvergreenHealth employees. To register, visit their website or call 541.383.4179.
