If you’re called to assist family, friends, or clients in meeting mortality, you must first become intimate with it yourself.
In a death-denying culture, we aren’t given the tools or the opportunity to truly consider the inevitability of our own deaths. If you were to die tomorrow, are you ready? Are you emotionally, relationally, spiritually, mentally, and physically prepared? Whether your death comes sooner, or later, these are important questions to ask yourself today.
In this deeply experiential workshop, you’ll explore what it means to live with death on your shoulder. You’ll learn practices to ease your own relationship with death, and you’ll gain skills to help others do the same. In doing so, you’ll find a deeper relationship with life.
The curriculum draws from ancient wisdom teachings, traditional indigenous practices, modern consciousness research, and the richness of the human soul. Using ceremony, reflection, meditation, and art, we’ll dismantle some of the obstacles that keep us from being present with death – our own, and other people’s
The rituals in this workshop address the needs of individuals facing their own death, and they’ll prepare to meet your death with greater consciousness and clarity. From here, you’ll be able to be present with others, and to support them as they meet theirs.
