Abstract submission link: Not currently accepting abstracts
Event: ADEC 36th Annual Conference: Riding the Dragon: End of Life and Grief as a Path to Resilience, Transformation and Compassion (April 23-26, 2014, Baltimore, MD)
Description: Death and bereavement are profoundly life-altering and may be likened to a great and mysterious hero’s journey. The path of grief is often dark and ominous, when suddenly, in the words of author Julia Cameron, “rising from the mists and rolling fog of our not knowing,” the hero (griever) comes face to face with a dragon. According to a Chinese proverb, “If he ignores the dragon, it will eat him. If he tries to confront the dragon it will overpower him. But if he rides the dragon, he will take advantage of its might and power.” Therein lies the potential for resilience, transformation and compassion. At this year’s conference, participants will deepen their appreciation for the dark night of the soul and the great gifts that can emerge when, rather than being defeated, the bereaved find the strength and courage to ride the dragon.
