Good news! Due to popular demand we have opened a second session on the following day.

We are very pleased to offer this free forum on “Spirituality, Reflective Practice and Palliative Care” to volunteers and others working in end of life care in Northern New South Wales.

Spirituality is a fundamental element of human experience that encompasses an individual’s search for meaning and purpose in life and their experience of the transcendent.

In this forum Kate Englebrecht will discuss spirituality in the context of caring for people at or near the end of their lives. Kate will also explore reflective practice for practitioners and how meaning is made or formed from our experiences of caring.

This forum is particularly for the benefit of Palliative Care volunteers and people who are interested in becoming Palliative Care volunteers, as well as other health volunteers, volunteer managers and clinicians. Anyone affiliated with end-of-life care is welcome but RSVPs are essential.

This forum is offered free of charge but places are limited so please book early.

UPDATE: BOTH SESSIONS ARE NOW FULLY BOOKED. Apologies if you did not get a space but we hope to see you at other events in the future.

When: Thursday 20 May 2021 (Wednesday and Thursday sessions fully booked)

Time: 1pm – 3pm

Where: Brunswick Valley Community Centre; 42 S Beach Rd Brunswick Heads

RSVP is essential due to COVID restrictions – Please email [email protected] or phone 0404 217 414

Presenter: Kate Englebrecht

Kate Englebrecht has lectured in spirituality and been a teacher for many years. She makes use of current observations and insights relevant to human development to inform an approach to supporting people and communities as they navigate their way through complex and challenging times. Kate has a particular desire to support those who care for those who are dying.
