Bereavement in the family







The word is SHEN, or life. This is a quote chosen by Dalai Lama.

I am invited to run a workshop for the New Zealand Sand's Conference. Many female members of the family suffered baby bereavement.

  • As you know Sands Waikato is doing the conference for 2013. We are trying to cover differet cultures & believes this year. We are people doing workshops in regards to Maori, Pacific & christian culture. We are wanting someone to cover the asia culture around death. Would you be interested or be able to recommend someone who could.
    Let me know what you think
    Regards Amie

    Hi Amie,
    I shall like to do it on the Asian Culture. Do you want it as bereavement as a whole, or baby bereavement?

    Hi Ann,
    Firstly sorry to hear that about the funeral.
    We are making the book avaible to all Sands Waikato families. We have a Sands Waikato library that it is now part off. Covering both would be great. The aim is to give people an understanding of how different cultures, views & how they deal with death. As I imagine there will be alot of midwifes interested in this session a littlte bit about birth, followed by the passing of a baby would be great.
    Look forward to hearing from you.
    Amie The conference is on the 20-21 September 2013.

    This message is from Cathy - I'm the one putting the programme together, and I'm thrilled you're willing to offer a workshop/presentation on the death of a baby from an Asian perspective.

    Thank you again for contributing in such a meaningful way to this special event!! Cathy
