Five Day Internship At ABODE  


Pre-requisites: You have participated in a Death Doula Training. You have been with at least five as they were dying; you are open to learning about contemplative practices; you are open to learning about dying in a spiritual context vs. a religious one; you are not actively grieving the death of someone you love; you recognize the opportunity for your own growth related to endings and beginnings; you are willing to respect confidentiality of guests and families; you are willing to participate actively and respectifully in group experiences. We will provide a list reading/videos/audios for you to read/watch/listen before you begin. 

You will learn about: contemplative practices, presence, the trajectory of dying, rituals, body care, grief and loss, language of dying, self care, energy management, perspectives on dying.

We begin at 9am on Friday and end at 5pm on Sunday. This is not necessarily a 9-5 experience. We will instead work with the rhythms of ABODE and opportunities for service that arise. 

The training is held at ABODE Contemplative Care for the Dying in San Antonio, Texas. You are reponsible for travel costs to get to San Antonio and to get to/from ABODE. 

A block of rooms will be held for you at a nearby hotel. You are responsible for the cost of the hotel.

Breakfast/Lunch will be provided all three days. Additional information will be provided once you register. 

Cost: $2500
