Dear Readers,

The new year brought ambitious and moving tasks to the Academy right from the start. Beside a closed conference of several days on “Spirituality and Existential Communication”, organized by “Diakonie” (= protestant social work) Germany and the German Association for Palliative Medicine, a trip to Ukraine on the occasion of the course “Palliative Care for Physiotherapists” is to be emphasized. Directed by Peter Nieland from Bonn, it was my task to make a contribution to aspects of nursing, communication, and spirituality. It is always a great pleasure to me to be in Ivano-Frankivsk. I have drawn up a short survey of the central projects in 2019 under the heading “Widening the Horizon”.

I wish you much strength and that you time and again may find moments for pausing and taking care of yourself.
