My name’s Filippo Laurenti. I live in Turin, North-West Italy. I was born in 1975 and I have a daughter (Sole, aged 19) and a son (Giaime, aged 17). I work as a spiritual care professional in the field of end-of-life care and as a trainer in conflict management. My educational background includes a four-year degree in Philosophy and a three-year diploma in counselling recognized by the European Association for Counselling (EAC).

As a spiritual care professional, I work in a hospice. I help people at the end of their lives and their families to find meaning in what they are going through. As part of that, I am very likely to work with them at a spiritual level. That’s why I became involved with the Task Force on Spiritual Care in Palliative Care promoted by the European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC). In doing so, I ended up representing another organization in Italy in the same field: the Spiritual Care Association.

As a trainer, I work with groups on conflict management. I get inspiration and strength for my work from three different sources: the systemic theory as stated by Gregory Bateson, the nonviolent communication developed by Marshall Rosenberg and the practice of the vipassana meditation (which I consider more like a lifestyle rather than a mere stress-reducing technique).

Meanwhile, I returned to studying: I’m a student at Turin University’s med school. I see it as a gift from all these years spent with people in end-of-life care, facing together our common humanity, filled with fears and dreams. And you know what? Sometimes, dreams do come true.
