For the Death of Me 2012
Jun 25 – Jun 29, 2012
Mon 7:00 PM – Fri 1:00 PM
This intensive course will help participants in developing the spiritual meaning of their own death. Each of us must die. Many of us keep this Self Death Awareness deeply submerged throughout almost all of our lives. A meaningful death is bound up with the conscious meaning given to it by a person’s awareness of the story of their life. This requires learning, reflection and sharing in a safe environment.
Using the Hopewell Theological World Survey, as well as various readings, both ancient and new, Christian and other, non-fiction and fiction, participants will learn about death and decide what is particularly meaningful for them. The social aspects of death and dying will be explored as well as some of the physiological processes of dying.
Linda will discuss this program individually with each prospective participant prior to the event to ensure it will meet their needs. As well, participants are required to obtain Life after Death by Tom Harpur and Social Perspectives on Death and Dying by Jeanette A. Auger.
Frederick Seller, Chaplain, who will act as a support person for this event, is a retired United Church minister and hospital chaplain now living on Prince Edward Island.
Carol Stevenson-Seller, PRG sees her life mission as helping people name and claim their giftedness as human beings. She has worked in career and life transition planning, strategic planning and as a trainer of trainers in adult education.
Program Cost: $645 ($330 tuition+ $315 meals/accommodations)
