Welcome to our website.

The core work of the Living/Dying Project is about healing

The core work of the Living/Dying Project is about healing, healing our body, our mind, and our spirit, healing that is inspired and motivated by the preciousness of human life itself and by the fact that we will all die but we do not know when.

We serve four groups of people:

  • caregivers
  • healthcare professionals
  • those facing a life-threatening illness
  • anyone on the path of spiritual awakening who wishes to deepen their practice

For anyone confronting a life-threatening illness or caring for someone with a critical illness, finding conscious and compassionate emotional and spiritual support for deep healing is essential.

Online Counseling & Workshops

For those of us who are not facing a life-threatening illness or caring for some who is, can our mortality and the preciousness of life inspire us also to plunge fully into this work? Using wisdom gathered from decades of guiding the dying, from intensive meditative and devotional practices, and from studying how our psychological development often limits the fruits of our mindfulness and our spiritual practice, we offer live at-a-distance counseling via telephone and Skype.

Internet-based live, interactive workshops and groups designed for deep exploration and manifestation of healing are available. These services are appropriate both for those exploring end-of-life issues as well as those wanting to deepen their spiritual practice.

San Francisco Bay Area Weekly Groups

For those living in the San Francisco Bay Area, Dale facilitates Healing at the Edge ongoing, weekly small groups for anyone who wishes to come together in a supportive healing family. Deepen compassion. Avoid compassion burnout. The map of the healing path that we use is not a shortcut, but it avoids the detours and roadblocks that are common for the modern seeker. We are all caregivers and we are all seekers of healing. These groups meet in San Francisco, Sebastopol, and Santa Rosa.

Mission Statement

Imagine facing death
without fear.

Imagine using
a life-threatening
illness as an opportunity
for spiritual awakening.

Imagine approaching
the unknown with
an open heart.

We often resist change
as a natural part of life.

Strength and healing
can be found in life’s
most difficult situations.

The Living/Dying Project
offers compassionate
support in the spirit of
mutual exploration to
those facing life-
threatening illness.

Not only is another world possible,
she is on her way.
On a quiet day,
I can hear her breathing.
~~ Arundhati Roy
