7:00 PM Evening Program: a film - Ram Dass:Fierce Grace
Registrants of Attending Pain and Dying are encouraged to bring a guest and join us for a showing of Mickey Lemles critically acclaimed film Ram Dass: Fierce Grace.
Lemle, who has known his subject for 25 years, balances fascinating, often hilariously funny footage from the hippie era, with contemporary material on Ram Dass, as he remakes his life since suffering a stroke five years ago. Film Forum.
In February, 1997, Ram Dass experienced a stroke, which left him with problems of expressive aphasia and partial paralysis. The after effects of the stroke have made it necessary for him to postpone plans for his radio program, but he has been able to resume his other teaching commitments, and he is using the experiences attendant on his stroke to explore more deeply the spiritual dimensions of suffering and the nature of the aging process.
Ram Dass' latest book is on consciousness and aging, entitled Still Here: Embracing Aging, Changing and Dying, which was published by Riverhead Books in May of 2001.
Note: There will be no CEUs offered for the evening portion of this program

By the end of this conference participants should be familiar with the impact pain and terminal prognosis has on quality of life from three domains: providers, the patient and their families. Practitioners will gain skills to deal more effectively with each of these domains
