Shining Light on Death Workshop 2 at South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

Shining Light on Death Workshop 2 at South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

The second of 3 workshops on Shining Light on Death, also held at South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, had 18 participants continuing their exploration of the subject. In small groups they read and explored the meaning in the words, thoughts and insights from an excerpt from ‘Gatanjali’ by the Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore.

The group was led through a self-compassion visualisation with the thought that if self-compassion was developed when we are well, it would help us prepare for a peaceful death. This would also help us be compassionate with someone who was dying.

The groups then reflected on the importance of tidying up loose ends in their own lives and identifying their individual circles of support. The workshop ended with feedback and meditation in the Chapel with the lighting of a candle.

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
