A Presentation of The Living & Dying Consciously Project
Conscious Transitions: Living with Dying is the signature offering of the Living & Dying Consciously Project –
an experiential 2-day workshop in which participants learn and practice ancient techniques to help the dying and their caretakers manage the complexities of death and find a measure of peace.
This 14-hour experiential training is designed to help people approach death consciously. Participants will discover and learn a variety of techniques to help the dying person and their loved ones find peace. These techniques will expand your understanding of preparing for death as a rite of passage, including the psychological and emotional closure needed in the dying process.
Scientists and shamans agree that those who perform personal rituals transcend the stress of loss.This program draws from the wisdom of the ancient traditions as well as current research in the field. Participants have found their lives enriched and their work with clients transformed through the discovery of a new relationship with death.
In this intensive, experiential workshop participants will:
Experience literal, mythic and energetic techniques to prepare for death as a rite of passage.
Identify key attributes of the human energy field and explore methods of clearing and calming a person in distress.
Investigate many ways to open and close sacred space for the dying.
Discover different methods to assist in the practice of life review.
Experience the power of giving oneself permission to die.
Recognize the transformative nature of ceremony and analyze basic elements that contribute to a successful ceremony.
Create an Aya Despcho, a prayer bundle for those who have died, and examine the ways in which participants may create an Aya Despacho ceremony for their community.
Conscious Transitions: Living with Dying is appropriate for all persons involved in the dying process: the individual, family members, friends, counselors, therapists, chaplains and medical support staff. Class is limited to 30 students. Three trained, experienced teachers work closely with students to ensure that participants master each technique. Partial scholarships may be available for professional hospice staff.
