Yolo Hospice presents the Modern Alchemy of Western and Transpersonal Medicine
A "transpersonal" approach to medicine that addresses the spiritual dimension, allowing clinicians and patients to experience health and illness as dynamic and transformative processes -- for both doctor and patient -- is the subject of the day-long October workshop "The Modern Alchemy of Western and Transpersonal Medicine," that will explore bridging modern western medical traditions with age-old spiritual practices such as shamanism. Transpersonal medicine refers to healing that arises from sources beyond the self and the western medical tradition. The workshop will include demonstrations that will elucidate how such transpersonal approaches as shamanism can be incorporated into western patient-care settings, such as hospitals and hospice settings. Presented by Yolo Hospice, the event will be held on Sunday, Oct. 27, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Stonegate Country Club, 919 Lake Blvd., Davis, CA. Breakfast will be provided by Yolo Hospice partner Carlton Senior Living, Davis; lunch will be provided by Yolo Hospice partner Comfort Keepers. There is no fee for attendance, however, attendance will be limited. The courtesy of an RSVP is required. To RSVP, please contact Yolo Hospice at 530-601-5566.
