Death Can be the Greatest Transformation of a Lifetime!
In our culture, dying is often experienced with fear. We see death only as an end – as a time of suffering and silence and complete loss. We make death invisible, hoping that if we avoid it long enough, we will escape from what we mistakenly see as our grim reality.
Is it possible to hold the experience of death differently?
Come to a full day retreat on Dying Gracefully to re-imagine the dying process or to prepare yourself for the death of a loved one. In our time together you will:
• receive information and resources about the dying process;
• re-frame your conception of death;
• gather ideas and inspiration on how to support loved ones in their dying process — in healing a lifetime;
• embrace life from a different perspective!
Death can be the great transformation of a lifetime!
The workshop is taught by Rising Fire senior teachers who have years of experience supporting the dying process of friends, family and clients. Participants will learn how to facilitate an “End of Life Review” and how to help families process grief. We will learn to work with the energy body in conducting the Great Death Rites of the shaman. Each participant will have the opportunity to create a ceremony celebrating the end of one cycle and welcoming the next.
Ancient Practices Support Your Healing
This intensive workshop is part of a series in our ongoing work in mastering the Shaman’s Tools of Perception, Ceremony, and Living Energy. You will learn how medicine men and women have been assisting their communities to embrace life and death. We apply these practices and healing orientation to modern life.
A former class participant had this to say: “Re-framing my idea of death is the most powerful work I’ve ever done. At first, when the facilitator starting talking about death as an ally, I couldn’t fathom it. By the end of the class, I felt the possibility of dying with grace – no fear. This is true freedom!” –Shane McKibben 2013
