Ann Jacob and Stan Tomandl


Stan & Ann teaching Coma Work in Japan

Stan Tomandl, MA, PWD (Process Work Diplomate) and Ann Jacob, BA Ed, of Coma Communication and Process Oriented Facilitation, have specialized for over 25 years in working with, researching, and teaching about people in altered consciousness: illness, dementia, traumatic brain injury, coma, grief, and other fragile and strong times in our living and dying. They are instructor and student under the mentorship of Drs. Arnold and Amy Mindell at the Process Work Institute Graduate School in Portland, Oregon. Ann and Stan also serve on the faculties of the Sacred Art of Living Center and the Anamcara Project in Bend, Oregon, reside on the Board of ComaCARE in Cape Town, South Africa, and train caregivers around the world.

Ann and Stan have each studied for 60 years in the school of life while ranching, wilderness homesteading, commercial fishing, raising seven children, navigating remote rivers in northern Canada, and now enjoying the wilds of city life. ~ “We are pushed and pulled by spiritual currents to gather people to share in the deepest inner workings of our collective minds and hearts and lives, creating a special atmosphere for the ordinary and the extra ordinary. We find people’s essential inner rivers enriching for those drawn to navigate them, relieving when we take opportunities to join the current, and deeply connecting to ancient and modern mystic traditions that are the living waters found everywhere on this planet.”

Stan and Ann are available to present a training in your community of
care whether it is family and friends caring for a loved one, or a care
facility wanting to expand their quality of care or get specific
trainings to help with ongoing complicated situations – especially where
communication methods have to be reinvented because of issues around
illness, accident, and the amazing dances of diversity at the end of
life.  We train in hospices, teach in conferences, enhance training
school programs, forward the deepening of care with spiritual centers,
and provide a language for care that is cross cultural and welcomed by
diverse faith communities. We create a warm and open hearted atmosphere
for learning over the phone as well as in person.
