FACING THE MIRROR OF MORTALITY: Compassion and Presence in Our Living and Dying

Facing the Mirror of Mortality is a weekend workshop (starting at 6pm on Friday May 26, 2017 and ending at 1pm on Sunday May 28, 2017) for anyone who wishes to explore the nature of our impermanent lives, with Redwing Keyssar (RN, author of Last Acts of Kindness), Jami Sieber (electric cello/voice), Danielle Shapona, (Reiki master, energy work), & Agu (singing bowls).

“No one gets out of here alive!” but we do have choices about how we live fully and powerfully throughout our lives, even through the journeys of illness and dying. Throughout the weekend our collective wisdom will unfold within the cauldron of music, mindfulness, stories, guided imagery, and energy work. As we contemplate our impermanence, we may better serve our friends, our loved ones, and ultimately ourselves when we are faced with dying.

$725 includes lodging, meals, workshop fees.
$650 Early Bird Rate before March 1, 2017
