Healing at the Edge: Conscious Living, Conscious Dying
Zoom Workshops 2022

Feb 26th – 27th

  • 2 date options available

  • Learn basic and advanced contemplative practices for yourself and to use with others 

  • Learn how to prepare for and guide a conscious death

  • Become embodied in the face of suffering

  • Work with pain in the body

  • Offer conscious and compassionate support to people with a life-threatening illness

  • This workshop will benefit anyone who wants to deepen their spiritual practice

Each of us is at a particular point on our healing path, confronting our next challenge, often without clearly knowing whether attitudes or practices we have been using are becoming stale or without knowing which direction we should turn to create meaningful transformation.

During each workshop, we will learn a clear, concise model of the healing process that can specifically diagnose and identify the next step that is transformational for each of us, even during crisis. Short, intensive, guided meditations will be presented in order to create a healing experience rather than only a discussion about healing.

You will learn practical tools on how to activate the heart, become embodied, be compassionately grounded in the face of suffering, work with pain in the body, and learn how to consciously work with others dealing with their own emotional and physical pain.

Please note, although this workshop will discuss being with the dying, this workshop is not limited to individuals who are working with the dying as these teachings can be used in any mindfulness practice. However if you would like to work with the dying, you will have the option to become a Living/Dying Project volunteer upon completing the workshop. 

We provide ongoing volunteer 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.

After registration, you will receive a confirmation email from The Living/Dying Project within 24 hours. A zoom link will be sent a few days before the workshop.

“Thanks for the great workshop. It integrated very well with my current practice and teachings but you gave me a lot I can also work with with patients, and I’ve never had an actual tool / practice to work with opening the heart – despite years of working on just that. Thanks again.”
~ Kim

“Rather than being drained, depleted, and resentful as is more typical of the CE experience, I found myself energized and restored for the work ahead. No surprise given the focus on grounding and centering as the foundations for selfless compassion.”
~ Michael
