David is a hospice nurse and has a Masters degree in process-orientated psychology. Previously, he worked as an economist in the Reserve Bank of New Zealand. David has been nurtured by the Christian contemplative tradition and currently practices zen meditation.
In this workshop David shows how he focuses on that window of time when a dying person becomes non-verbally responsive. Using insights from process-orientated psychology, he explains how patients can be accompanied and nurtured during the final phase of their illness. David believes that a meditative or awareness practice can greatly enhance our sensitivity to a person’s subtle signals and internal processes as they are dying.
