The Anthroposophical Palliative Care Circle presents

A weekend practice-based workshop considering death from a deeper aspect than is the norm today.

The inner life of soul and spirit are explained in their role in this transition and in addition, the nursing care of the physical body is considered prior to and after death. We look also in a healthy way, at the possibility of accompanying the human being during this process while full consciousness is carried around the sacredness of this mysterious threshold.

Aim of the workshop: to empower families and communities to take death care back into their own hands, highlighting the three-day, post death, care vigil in the home.

Morning and afternoon tea will be provided and lunches will be self catered. 


30th September-1st October 2023
Saturday 9am-5pm & Sunday 9am-3pm


Harmony Centre, Mittagong NSW

About the presenters

The Palliative Care Circle is an emerging initiative to establish holistic palliative care services and education in Australia.

Members of the Palliative Care Circle have their spiritual home in Anthroposophy and work in various professional modalities at the threshold of death. This circle forms a source from which they draw, and to which they contribute, through regular meetings for study and sharing. Their collective work supports each individual’s work, deepening and refining understanding of care at the threshold of death. This understanding informs their practice.

Members of the Circle, which includes nurses, doctors, priests, counsellors, naturopaths, death doulas, art and massage therapists, can provide a range of death care services in the home., working as individuals and in teams, professionally and voluntarily.
