Rigpa’s Spiritual Care Program offers practical ways in which the wisdom and compassion of the Buddhist teachings can benefit those facing illness or death, and help support their families and care-givers.
For over 20 years, the Spiritual Care Program has offered seminars and training delivered by a team of highly trained educators and facilitators. We have worked with hospitals, hospices and universities and organized international conferences. To date 30,000 professionals and volunteers from Europe, Australia, North and South America, India and Israel working in all fields of medicine, social care and education have attended trainings. We also offer workshops, retreats and support groups for people facing serious illness, death, or bereavement, as well as for their families. We have an online learning program providing access and support from anywhere in the world.
