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 to facilitate growth in ourselves or in our clients are becoming stale, without knowing which direction we should now turn to create meaningful transformation.

In this workshop we will draw upon the wisdom of Buddhism, the diagnostic message coming from the connection between stages of early childhood development and energetic patterns in the adult body, as well as the softening and passion of heartfelt devotion. Having applied these wisdom traditions during forty years of being a guide to the dying, a very clear and practical paradigm for the healing path has become apparent to me. Healing occurs through direct contact with the Sacred, through realization of our true nature.

During this workshop we will explore together a clear, concise and usable 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 an experience that is about healing. We are all caregivers and are all seekers of healing.

This workshop will also benefit anyone who wants to deepen their spiritual practice. A certificate of completion and California CEUs for registered nurses and licensed acupuncturists will be available. After completing this training you have the option of becoming a Living/Dying Project adjunct volunteer for whom regular online support groups addressing the issues that arise in working with dying clients.

Cost for the virtual online version of the Healing At Our Edge Workshop is $200. The course is available now. Please send us an email if you pay via PayPal with the Register Now button below and we will send you instructions for viewing the workshop.

Our Mission

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 conscious and compassionate support in the spirit of mutual exploration to those facing life-threatening illness, to their caregivers, to those facing life’s most difficult situations, and to anyone committed to spiritual transformation.

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.
