The only structured tool that strengthens families in hospice and palliative care.

Train staff and volunteers in THE HUMAN JOURNEY® methodology with Founder Dr. Sara K. Schneider.

Dr. Sara K. Schneider’s own rich story and her expertise in group dynamics led her to develop THE HUMAN JOURNEY® system, which helps patients and families around the world gain meaning, gather spiritual resources, practice mature communication skills, and renew their sense of belonging in the face of mortality.

THE HUMAN JOURNEY® will guide them — and you — to that place of deeper listening and peace.

A transformational experience of healing and growth for small groups of up to 6 to 8.

THE HUMAN JOURNEY® Experience brings insight, the ability to listen for deeply held values, and a profound sense of belonging.

It helps sustain families and support groups through life’s challenges by subtly framing each person’s story within the universal narrative that makes us human.

IN THE HUMAN JOURNEY® CONDUCTOR TRAINING, YOU WILL:

Improve patient and family spiritual care outcomes.

Build strength and skill in group facilitation as you receive personalized feedback and goal-setting.

Gain fresh insights on your own relational history as you practice facilitating the THE HUMAN JOURNEY® Experience for others.

Provide appropriate volunteers with a meaningful service to provide for families.

  • Guide families and support groups through the unfolding of a universal narrative;
  • Maintain safety for all participants and hold to the ground rules that free them of long-engrained family roles and patterns;
  • Bring even reluctant family members into the process;
  • Help families show rather than tell the patient that they will be okay after his or her death;
  • Teach and reinforce the listening skills required of participants;
  • Recognize your own predispositions, experiences, and spiritual biases, in order to provide a neutral environment for others;
  • Match your facilitation style to the learning styles and governing imagery of the participants;
  • Create a frame around the THJ Experience for maximum memorability and long-lasting impact; and
  • Make THE HUMAN JOURNEY® Experience equally meaningful, whether you conduct it for participants in person or online.
