Spiritual Care - Moment to Moment

- Community Announcement -

Thursday 5th September, 6pm-7.30pm
at Allan Scott Auditorium, UniSA, City West Campus,
 55 North Tce, Adelaide.

Responding to spiritual needs is well recognised in government policy and best practice guidelines as part of a holistic approach to palliative care. But what do we mean by spiritual needs and what do they look like in the unpredictable and fluctuating environments of palliative care?

This presentation will reflect upon these questions from both philosophical and practical perspective. The forum will consider the individual nature of spirituality and its implications for providing care for those with a life-limiting illness.

An Indigenous immersion experience - October 25-27 2019

- Community Announcement -

TEAR has 12 places available to spend a weekend at Raukkan, an Aboriginal community on Ngarrindjeri land at the mouth of the Murray.

Rose Rigney, Chairperson of the Raukkan Community Council describes the community this way:

I think we Ngarrindjeri have a real gift of hospitality. I think we also have a great system of community and structure. We've always had that and then somebody took it away and said “No we're going to do it this way.” So we sort of fell into that way of thinking but now we're saying “You know what? That way doesn't work for us! Why aren‘t we doing what we always did?” So almost organically we've ended up back at caring for country, mentoring, hosting groups, housing people for the weekend and looking after them - hospitality. We are doing what we've always done.

Rose and her husband Clyde, along with other members of the community, have extended an invitation to TEAR to spend some time with them learning about our shared story through a deeper understanding of their story.
