Spiritual care

Figures on beach
Spiritual care is not a luxury for a few; it is the essential right of every human being, as essential as policial liberty, medical assistance, and equality of opportunity. | Sogyal Rinpoche, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying

There is a widely recognized need in our society today for the development of more effective ways of meeting the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of people who are facing a serious illness or dying. Despite dramatic advances in medical technology, it is clear that fundamental questions remain at the boundary of life and death that are not subject to technical or scientific solutions.

Our Mission

The aim of the Spiritual Care Programme is to demonstrate practical ways in which the compassion and wisdom of the Buddhist teachings can be of benefit to those facing illness or death and also to their families and medical caregivers. Based on the teachings of Sogyal Rinpoche and his widely acclaimed, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, together with insights drawn from the experience of hospice and caring for people, we offer an integrated approach for people from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds.

Our seminars, study groups and training seminars emphasise universal spiritual principles which many people find resonate with those of their own tradition.

The environment at Dzogchen Beara provides a perfect setting for spiritual care seminars and training and is also the home of Dechen Shying Spiritual Care Centre.
