‘Keys to Opening the Spiritual Gate’


‘Keys to Opening the Spiritual Gate’ is a training day for those planning to facilitate ‘Opening the Spiritual Gate’ face to face courses.

We now have facilitators working across  Cheshire & Merseyside Palliative & End of Life Care Network; Greater Manchester, Lancashire & South Cumbria Network and Royal Devon & Exeter, delivering the course to their own local healthcare professional workforce.

We are always looking to expand the course into other areas - if you are interested in training your own staff or want to incorporate the course across your network, please get in touch for more details.

- undertaken the ‘Opening the Spiritual Gate’ course themselves

- be supported by their organisation to run the day course in their own environment

- have confirmation from their organisation that they will be given time and opportunity to run the course

Face to face - pairs of participants, usually both (but at least one) health professionals, will be introduced to the material and suggested methods of facilitation.

3. Materials

4. Facilitators

Will be supported by an online mentoring and support service whilst delivering the course back at their workplace.
