Personal and / or Professional Spiritual Development

Diagnosing Spiritual Pain is one of the four units of The Sacred Art of Living and Dying. This world renowned programme has been running at Our Lady’s Hospice since 2008 and consists of four stand-alone units.

Each unit comprises of a two-day workshop followed by five small study group sessions, called Circles of Trust.  These two-hour monthly meetings are held in various locations around Ireland and designed to maximize integration of learning into daily practice.  Programmes are a creative blend of instruction, hands-on experience, multimedia presentation, personal reflection and creative rituals from the world’s great wisdom traditions.

The programme will enable participants to:

  • Explore the nature and inter-relationship of human health and suffering and the universal aspects of meaning, forgiveness, hope & relationship.
  • Live with enhanced purpose and meaning through all the stages and transitions of living and dying and accompany others to do so.
  • Connect or reconnect the ‘soul and role’ in their lives.

Diagnosing Spiritual Pain Module

Participants study in depth the time-tested primary diagnoses of spiritual pain: forgiveness, relatedness, meaning and hope. Through a series of case studies as well as reflecting on personal experience, traditional and contemporary modes of inner healing are applied to pastoral practice. The result is an enhanced ability to recognise and celebrate the gifts of growth and transformations revealed throughout life.
