When illness strikes it seems that it takes away or alters everything important to you: your identity, your career, your relationships, and even your sense of who you are. Having your hopes and dreams derailed in this way is an excruciating experience. But illness is also about growth and awakening. In fact, it is a perfect path for leading us to what is important in life.
Lynn is a longtime caregiver and chronic illness expert who has brought her knowledge of integral philosophy to helping people to understand and live with illness whether as patient, caregiver, provider, or administrator. She will talk about her experience in working with illness in several capacities and her hopes that people with illness will be seen and will see themselves as explorers in uncovering new depths of understanding about the human condition, understandings that can serve us all.
Lynn is offering a course starting on January 5th. In this course, she focuses on illness as a path to deep personal growth.
Using the integral map, participants will look at how growth occurs and how the experience of illness can offer a direct route to a better, more mature, and more sane experience of being human.
The course is suitable for patients, caregivers, practitioners and others who deal with healthcare matters.
