Walking the Mammoth Trail
For the overwhelming majority of human existence human beings have belonged to small groups of people or “tribes”. These tribes were nomadic in nature and life revolved around surviving by gathering, fishing, and hunting. Everyone had a valued and occupied a needed place and felt a true sense of belonging out of which they experienced the joys, successes, failures, and deaths of members of the tribe together. The focus of this seminar will be an exploration of anticipatory grief as people diagnosed with a life limiting illness and their “tribe” walk the painful trail of loss and tears leading up to the death. The focus will be on supporting not only a patient but the entire group of their people individually and as a “tribe”.
