While every workshop teaches you how to live, there are none or very few being conducted here that will teach you about death and dying.
Death is a force that gives meaning and substance to life for what would life really be worth were there to be no death. Infact the Toltecs have believed that life is not really a force; it is merely a playground on which two forces battle out for survival – consciousness and death. For us to go through fearlessly and successfully in life it is essential to understand death.
This workshop is designed to give the participants an understanding of the after death landscapes and the process of dying. Participants would be given understanding on what happens before, during and after physical death. The aim is to prepare them for facing their own deaths consciously and take the fear and the mystery away from a subject that can be ignored but never avoided.
The workshop will also build understanding of the “Grief Landscape”, for grief is an assured feature on the landscape of the living. Wherever & whenever death knocks there will be grief. Other than whatever the death and dying sections of the workshop do for the participants, they would additionally enable them to help those facing death and those who are grappling with grief, having lost their loved ones.
The third section of the workshop is about understanding that sometimes things can and do go wrong in the process of dying. This leaves us with the “Dead” floating around in our world, creating the psychic debris of the Middle World. This has negative consequences for all involved. This part of the workshop is about equipping the participants with the methods and skills to transport the “Dead” (disincarnate / disembodied souls) to their rightful place in the other worlds. This is truly an act of compassion for there is nothing more pitiable than a soul that has lost it’s way.
Understanding Death brings joy and power into living. Death used as an advisor has potential to lend
tremendous power to even mundane acts of life. Learn to use the power of death to change the trajectory of your life in unimaginable ways – for the better.
