Ep. 41 Creating Sacred Space in the Midst of Chaos

Today Dr. Karen Wyatt thanks her new Patron Leslie Robertson for her support of EOLU on the donation page at patreon.com/eolu . Leslie is working on a project to train unemployed women in their 40’s-60’s to do end-of-life work. If you become a patron, as well, Dr. Wyatt will mention your name and your work in a future episode.

Next Dr. Wyatt talks about the stresses endured by hospice workers in this time when both healthcare and death have become a business. She discusses the impact of late admissions to hospice on the workers who must care for patients and their families when there is only a short time to meet their needs. This talk includes:

  • Finding meaning in dying even when you work for a “business”
  • The sacredness inherent in the dying process
  • A helpful mindset for dealing with the stress of end-of-life work
  • How to be a channel for love and compassion rather than generating them from your own heart
  • Body/Mind/Spirit practices for self-care to ensure that you can help create sacred space for patients
  • The Lovingkindness Blessing:
    • May I be at peace.
    • May my heart remain open.
    • May I realize the beauty of my own true nature.
    • May I be healed.
    • May I be a source of healing for this world.

  1. Thank you so much for the mention Karen! Your work directly influenced my decision to become involved in the ‘movement’! When I decide on a business name, much easier than my personal, shorthanded email name, I’ll send that out…still planning while getting my master’s in mental health….you are making a difference and I’m so glad I found EOLU! Blessings and love to you!

    1. Thank you Leslie! I’m so happy to be able to inspire and support people like you who are doing this important work! Best of luck to you and do keep in touch!
