Testimonial Teresa A. Head, RN, BSN, CHPN  Palliative Care RN Coordinator, Caritas Coach  Kaiser Richmond Medical Center “Being in Tarron’s programs help me see how to focus on the inner needs of staff, their challenges and dreams for better care at end of life. As a palliative care provider, Tarron’s programs give me hope that as our palliative care programs expand, we can someday offer trainings to medical providers to provide best practice to deliver care to the dying. An educational package that includes training about personal death awareness issues will not only improve care to our members, it will bring deeper meaning, peace, and resiliency to our dedicated health care professionals.”

Caring Science Theory combined with Conscious Dying Education and Care Practices goes expands the compassionate palliative and hospice team based care model. It brings a sacred caring healing philosophy and experience of wholeness to caregivers who serve at end of life.

Caritas Conscious Dying Coach and Educators develops become the primary healing instrument in any care setting. Their authentic presence and love reach beyond and increase curative medical and technical care—care that is healing vs. curative. Care that brings quality life moments to all serving the dying time, and bring ife sustaining connections and healing relationships to all.

More About Our Program

This new Caring Science Conscious Dying "Master’s Path Certificate" draws from philosophy, ethics, values, and teachings of Caring Science as Sacred Science and Conscious Dying Healing Care Principles and Practices. The program renews the purpose and art of care-giving as a Spiritual Practice, increasing connection to our heart’s call to serve humanity before, during, and nearing end of life.

By going through this program participants may for the first time encounter deeper aspects of themselves that expand their self-awareness and help them identify their own hopes, beliefs and desires regarding end of life preparing them to walk this path with others.

It may function to remind them of their inter-connectedness to all life, their true nature and therefore the implications of their presence and practice with those they serve. They may feel their personal losses, grief, and the need to forgive and be forgiven for the first time and see the possibility for their own transformation and healing.

The program focuses our care practices on the powerful and subtle energetic portals of healing available to all attending nearing death. This focus on availability of life energy-the unitary field of consciousness, and intimate human to human connection via the immediate environment. It increases our inherent healing abilities and enables all care providers to become stronger in their personal presence as agents of healing and stewards in the art of surrender and letting go. It allows all involved to reconnect with Death as a transformative sacred passage and powerful portal in the circle of life.  It may increase healing care practices, shift and support the use of curative medical technical practices, and increase love care and healing for all.

Together we create a personal, intimate understanding Caring Science and Conscious Dying Theory and Practice. Through multiple ways of knowing: dialogue, reflective, aesthetic, experiential, and imaginal activities, participants explore their own relationship to death as an active part of life. We explore and deepen the ground of our being, our authentic caring healing presence and become agents of change in the evolution of human consciousness. We include a basic view of Caring Science Theory including 10 Caritas Processes and the Unitary World View. We will explore Conscious Dying Education's principles and practices including the 10 Conscious Dying Principles, The Subtle Energy Realms, Practices for Death, Forgiveness, and Conscious Communication. 

Through dialogue with others and deep inquiry into our own beliefs and values, we make this work our own. This type of exploration allows for the independent investigation of truth, expanding our own views of life and death and our ability to hold the views, opinions, and beliefs of others.

It teaches us to become more intimate with the challenges and grace in life of those nearing death. We learn to face our own fears and understand the importance of grieving our own loses. We will learn palliative therapies to use with any one regardless of health status. This sacred approach upholds Death as a sacred passage and transformative healing journey, including exploration of the spiritual and emotional practices/rituals necessary for dying patients to transition with grace inside their own beliefs and practices.

Level 1: Caritas Conscious Dying Coach

The Level 1 begins with a 3-day onsite, October 26-28th, 2018. It strengthens our authentic presence and loving kindness, our innate healing gifts and talents, renews our true calling spiritual path, and increases our capacity to be emotionally and spiritually supportive during this vulnerable and sometimes turbulent period of life. It gives us the confidence we need to befriend death, to inquire about and understand what people want most during critical illness and death.

It deepens understanding and embodiment of Unitary Field of Caring Science Theroy, the transformational portal and emergent Subtle Energies, 4 Caring Science Outcomes, The 4 C’s of Conscious Dying, & Caritas Processes and Conscious Dying Principles and Practices. It establishes the students’ experience of self as healing instrument in order to move from curative to healing care and be with the vulnerable turbulent waters and healing potential during life transitions.  It prepares students to increase conversations about end of life desires wishes for self and others.

Over the next 3 months, Between October 30th, February 4th, following the 3-day onsite students take part in virtual practicum called “Best Three Months: Conscious Dying Coaching and Care”. They work with student partners and community individuals, they learn to identify, understand and implement end of life priorities in 5 domains of life—to learn about and offer what matters most to themselves, patients, and families as if they have only 3 months to live. They engage with readings, resources, and reflective activities from the field of Caring Science as Sacred Science and Conscious Dying Healing Care.

Level 2: Caritas Conscious Dying Educator (Prerequisite: Level 1 or End of Life Doula Certificate)

After level 1, between February 11th, 2019 -April 10th, 2019 students engage in a Virtual Public Educator Project. This segment further develops the students’ confidence and skill to use Caring Science Conscious Dying Sacred values and principles. Students learn to facilitate the “Best Three Months 5 Domains of Life Care Planning" -- a life-fulfillment process that builds confidence to talk about death. and  it increases the number of people who identify and receive the healing care they want and need well in advance of death.

Students develop skills to educate the public in the organizations, systems, organizations, and communities they live and work within, using a “Communitas Ethos”, sacred end of life philosophy, raise death awareness as Caritas Conscious Dying Educators.
