Step into ceremony to develop a new relationship to living with aging, dying and loss.

Conscious Transitions: Living with Dying

An 18-Hour Experiential Workshop • Presented Live Online

Learn to approach death consciously as you discover and master a variety of mythic and energetic processes to assist the dying and their caregivers to find a measure of peace.

Blending knowledge of the ancient wisdom keepers with the latest scientific research, these simple tools and practices will expand your understanding of preparing for death as a rite of passage, including the psychological and emotional closure needed in the dying process.

Participants have found their lives enriched and their work with others transformed through the discovery of a new relationship with death. 

The signature offering of The Living & Dying Consciously Project, Conscious Transitions: Living with Dying is designed to support all persons involved in the dying process: individuals, family members, caregivers, counselors, therapists, chaplains and medical and hospice support staff.

TESTIMONIALS

What Past Participants Are Saying about Conscious Transitions

This workshop gave me new tools in my practice as an end of life guide; as well as the practice of living my own life consciously.
Crispin Sargent, End-of-Life Consultant

Thank you, Kitty, Deborah, and all the teachers for bringing your skills, knowledge, and your essence together to make this workshop so amazing!  My small group created a safe place to do my work and I felt so supported. 
~ Sandy Felt, Social Worker

I felt very supported as I did some unanticipated grief work. I loved the mythic journey and learning about the body's electrical charge.
~ Scott Robbins, Affordable Housing Coordinator

Conscious Transitions: Living with Dying was one of the most meaningful workshops I have ever attended. I came away with a toolbox full of tools to consciously select from and I gained important insights into my own beliefs and assumptions about conscious dying - and living!  
~ Summer Meyer, CEO, Imagine Mindfulness
