Shining Light on Death – Online Event (PART 1)

Shining Light on Death – Online Event (PART 1)

In the presence of someone who is nearing the end of their life, not knowing what to say or do can be daunting, frightening or even embarrassing. There is a natural concern about not wanting to offend or cause pain by saying the ‘wrong’ thing. But being with someone who is dying can also be experienced as the greatest privilege of all. Perhaps we should think less about what to say or do and more about how to practise the particular qualities of being gracefully present and respectful. It may be that just by ‘holding the space’ we’re doing enough, and the basic requirement for that is the capacity to be compassionately human- the greatest enabler of all.

Social Media Survey

Dear All,


Hope you have had an enjoyable summer. 


We are in the process of reviewing the Janki Foundation's social media content, which includes our website. 


Studies have indicated that different healthcare professionals have variable use of social media platforms, and they will make recommendations to patients or colleagues based on their confidence and reliability of information. In the current climate of healthcare crisis and information overload, we would benefit from an understanding on how spirituality-related information is accessed by healthcare professionals. This will enable us to focus our messages, events and outreach. 


We would greatly welcome your valuable thoughts through this survey. It is anonymous and will take less than 10 minutes to complete. 


Thank you.

Best wishes, 

JF Social Media Review Group
