Be restored and take refuge in the sanctuary of care at Samye Hermitage in Cooperstown, NY.
This inaugural retreat day is launching an annual summer series at Samye Hermitage supporting those who care for others. Samye Hermitage invites participants to an on-site experiential exploration of topics from Samye Institute’s Noble Living, Noble Caring, Noble Dying online program.
Learn skills for caring for yourself as we care for others. Experience what resilience is and how to cultivate it. Discover how we can live fully with compassion, kindness, and meaning and appreciate our precious human life.
Caring for others is a primary thread throughout life. Understand the skills of attending at the bedside and deep listening. Join us in exploring the skills of deep contemplative practice, presence, gentleness, and connection as we journey with others in their dying. Build skills to integrate self-care into your caregiving.
Each culture has its own beliefs about death and dying. Learn how we can support the dying and the bereaved so that death has meaning, tenderness, and compassion. Support others through the dying process so that all die knowing that they are loved and that their life mattered. So that we can live and die without regret.
