Come to Your Center: Breathe to Calm and Center Yourself

July 12, 2017 / Wednesday, 6:30pm - 8:00pm

Featured Programs

In this workshop, Breathe to Calm and Center Yourself, learn several breathing techniques to help you energize, yet calm your body, and to augment your vitality.

Breathe in deeply to bring your mind home to your body.
– Thich Nhat Hanh

When we breathe shallowly we send a signal to our brain that a crisis is about to happen. Our bodies are flooded with stress chemicals and we feel agitated. However, when we breathe deeply, we send a signal to our bodies that all is well. We become grounded and feel calm, peaceful, and filled with a sense of well-being.

Spirituality – A Dimension of Patient Care In Holistic Healthcare

August 09, 2017 / Wednesday, 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Featured Programs

The provision of spiritual or religious care in healthcare has received prominence in national reports, guidelines, and standards since the start of the millennium. According to these national recommendations, spiritual care is to be provided by healthcare providers, within their scope of practice, when the patient or patient advocate requests spiritual care; when there is evidence of spiritual or religious distress; or when there are requests for spiritual or religious resources.

The purpose of the presentation is to offer healthcare providers knowledge about spirituality in patient health care; to develop professional skills in spiritual care in healthcare; and to enhance one’s role and responsibility on the interdisciplinary team in practicing spiritual care in holistic healthcare.
