A Bend non-profit group that started here and has international impact; The Sacred Art of Living Center is celebrating it's 15 year anniversary this weekend. Founder Richard Groves worked in hospice for many years and noticed that dying patients and care-workers had some un-met emotional and spiritual needs. His group trains medical professionals locally and around the world. Groves says when people are in their final stages of life they have a much different perspective and priorities.   "To hang out around the sacred art of dying makes the sacred art of living a little more meaningful, because I think for many of us who are busy and on the treadmill of life priorities can get warbely, and in this work we're reminded about what's essential in life." The Sacred Art of Living Center created a workshop and retreat series that is the nation's first comprehensive training and certification program for spirituality in end of life care. The 15-year anniversary celebration is Saturday night at the Riverhouse at 7 pm. It's a Celtic themed party with entertainment and dessert.
