During our time together, we will gently, but firmly examine death awareness. You will learn about the nitty, gritty of how death happens. You will begin to build your own spiritual understanding about life and death within the context of your own life. Using the Hopewell Worldview Survey as a launching point, you will learn in a safe environment. Integrating readings and media clips, as well as readings both ancient and new, Christian and non-Christian, you will learn about death and decide for yourself what is meaningful. The goal and endpoint is to become more accepting of death so that you can LIVE more fully. Group time is interspersed with quiet contemplative moments. There are opportunities for private and small group conversations at any point in the program for those who wish to talk about anything that arises for them.
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 “There Is Life after Death” by Tom Harper.
