Support For Those With A Life Threatening Illness

Open Circle

The Open Circle program is free and offers support to anyone who may be newly diagnosed or who already has been dealing with a life-threatening illness. One who wishes to use this critical life event as an opportunity for awakening can receive counseling, evaluation and discussion of the client’s spiritual needs, discussion of the meaning of healing, guided meditation, relaxation, centering, learning how to connect with caregivers, and become aware of the obstacles to healing.

This includes the possibilities of conscious living, conscious dying, spiritual healing, remarkable remission, and freedom without avoiding the physical and emotional needs that illness presents. Opening to this investigation, one has the opportunity to go beyond attachment, contraction, and denial – entering the path toward healing.

You will be matched with a trained volunteer who will meet with you on a free-of-charge, ongoing basis. Locally, our trained volunteers work directly with clients. We also have volunteers who can work with clients non-locally over the internet. Volunteers meet in support groups and receive ongoing training. They are encouraged to have a contemplative spiritual practice to nurture their work with clients.

Finally, we offer a Client Support Group which gives current clients the opportunity to meet other clients who are also doing this work. We believe these services creates a special container to serve clients in their desire to practice and work with their unique situation.

We serve clients at all stages of illness from anywhere in the world — from diagnosis to recovery or death. Our intention is to be together with awareness, compassion, and empowerment.
