Shining Light on Death – Online Workshop ‘Living and Dying Well’ – Sunday 4th October 2020

With Chrissie McGinn, Richard Hewitt and Nirmala Ragbir-Day

People often have different thoughts about where and how they would like to die. What most would agree is that they would like to have a peaceful death. What does that mean, and how can we prepare ourselves to make that easier? Chrissie & Richard explored how we can live and die well. Following their conversation, we continued that exploration for ourselves in small groups.

Shining Light on Death – Online Workshop (PART 2) Saturday 1st August 2020

With Rev. Mike Gartland, Dr Sarah Eagger and Nirmala Ragbir-Day

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.

Hosted by:  The Janki Foundation and Bradford Inner Space.

HAPPIDOTE – LAUNCH OF A NEW APP

Launch of a new app, ‘Happidote’, by the Janki Foundation (Nov 2019), to support the wellbeing of health professionals. Think ‘happy antidote’.  The app has been designed as a quick and easy way to access simple guided meditations to help calm the mind and ease the stress of work. It covers 10 typical stress-causing scenarios based on the experiences of professionals working in healthcare, and 2 to 3 minute meditations that would act as the antidote to each situation.

In addition, the app has three generic meditation practices that can be used anytime, anywhere and a Spin the Value Scope feature, with one of 20 personal values to inspire and guide you.

The Happidote app, available for Android and iPhone formats, is absolutely free for all time, however, donations are welcome for the ongoing work of the charity.  The app can be download from Appstore and Google Play and jankifoundation.org/happidote.
