What’s the difference between the online course and the other workshops?
The online course has pre-recorded videos, so it’s self-paced. After purchasing, attendees will be emailed a specific date for a live 3-hour zoom group session with Ram Dev Dale Borglum. In the live session there are guided meditations, discussion of the pre-recorded material, and Q&A. See online course here.
The other workshops are live with Dale via zoom or in-person, depending on which one you attend. There will be other participants in the session.
The live January/February workshops and Esalen workshop would also include some updated material from the online course; most of the content remains the same.
What’s the difference between the 1 day vs. 2 day workshop option for the Jan/Feb workshops?
The 1 day workshop is essentially a summarized version of the basic material. It does not include much interaction, discussion, Q&A, and there are fewer exercises.
The 2 day workshop options goes into the material more deeply with a lot more interactive engagement and additional exercises.
Will I receive a certificate of completion after the workshop?
Yes, we can send a certificate of completion.
Will I be guaranteed to be given a client after the workshop?
Unfortunately this is not guaranteed. We do our best to pair clients with volunteers, but we cannot predict when a client comes to us.
How do I find dying clients?
My advice is to take a training program to get some tools and some more confidence and then just dive in. Let people know you are ready to do this work, including family and friends, and that you have training. Clients will follow. The world needs more people to do this work.
It is usually through word of mouth that people get clients. You may also consider volunteering with hospice and discern who is open to using their death as an opportunity for spiritual healing.
Is there ongoing training for volunteers?
Yes, we have a closed online volunteer support group where we share client experiences and help navigate next steps as you refine your practice along the way.
