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.”

Imagine being a part of the evolution of human consciousness by offering conscious care at end of life.  Imagine being a part of a new praxis of end of life education that includes the inner awakening of caring professionals, patients, and families.

Imagine being a part of the courageous movement, a new end of life "Careforce" that redefines the Hippocratic Oath of "Do No Harm" to "Create Care and Healing for All".

This program synthesizes two of the country's leading health care innovations, Caring Science Theory and Conscious Dying Education. It transforms patient and family care by increasing the caring consciousness of caregivers.

This new Caritas Conscious Dying Coaching 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.

In participating in this program, students engage in new praxis of holistic end of life education and restore death to it’s sacred place in the beauty, mystery, and celebration of life. Graduates create a new "careforce" of Caritas Conscious Dying Coaches whose caring healing presence and inner transformation awaken human consciousness as they support patients and families to experience the care and healing they want and need most during the ending of life.

The program includes a 3-month practicum:  “Best Three Months: Conscious Dying Coaching and Care Planning” process.  It is an end of life education, engagement, and life-fulfillment process utilizing 5 domains of life inquiry into what you would value and prioritize if you only have 3 months to live. The is program for anyone wishing to educate the public and/or serve families and patients during this powerful healing portal surrounding death.

The program begins with a 3-day, on-site workshop occurring April 25-27, 2019. 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.

Over the next 3 months, 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, and learn to identify, understand and implement end of life priorities in 5 domains of life.  In this way, participants 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.

The program focuses caring 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.

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.

Together we create a personal, intimate understanding Caring Science and Conscious Dying Theory and Practice.

Immersion in this programs 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.
