Many of us experience roadblocks and detours on the healing path. When we allow ourselves to directly and gently face these difficulties rather than push them away or to get lost in them, we can step beyond our conditioning and move toward realization of our inherent wholeness.

The Living/Dying Project works with people both locally in the Bay Area and internationally who wish to explore conscious living, compassionate caregiving, and conscious dying. We serve two main functions.

First, if you are facing a life-threatening illness, caring for someone who is, or are committed to spiritual transformation, we provide conscious and compassionate support through counseling, workshops, and ongoing groups. Together we dive into a deep investigation of our relationship with death and how it informs the way we live.

Second, the Living/Dying Project is committed to educating people from all backgrounds to be able to provide spiritual support for their loved ones or clients who are facing a life-threatening illness. We provide ongoing training and support for you and your practice. Although this work may seem daunting, we are living in a critical time where conscious compassion is fiercely needed. We believe all are capable of this heart opening practice.

“The Living/Dying Project is one of the most beautiful, profound and lovely organizations I know of. Dale and the people there have helped so many of my beloved friends cross over gracefully to whatever awaits us, beginning nearly thirty years ago, and helping my family once again just a few months ago.”
– Anne Lamott

“I recommend anything that
Dale teaches.”
– Ram Dass

“Dale was there with Ram Dass and Stephen [Levine] at the beginning of the conscious dying movement in the West. He is a pioneer and carries on our work with wisdom, humor and great compassion.”
