Fee: $380 (Deposit: $100)
November 13- November 16, 2018
Death touches all of us––sometimes from afar, sometimes up close and intimately personal, sometimes through our service in the world. In this unique, experiential Wisdom Arts for Dying workshop you will safely and creatively explore your personal readiness for dying well. You will deepen your knowledge about the optional conditions and tools you need to envision, prepare, and make it so. Rev. Carré draws from spiritual care, healing arts, and rituals from wisdom traditions in contemporary culture and from around the world. This workshop is suitable for adults of all faith traditions, or none. It is especially recommended for those serving as chaplains, social workers, therapists, nurses, physicians, hospice workers, death doulas, and personal or professional caregivers.
Program participants learn to:
- Move through fear to love
- Navigate expanded states of consciousness
- Ease symptoms through comfort care
- Incorporate healing arts of spiritual care, yoga, aromatherapy, sound, and subtle energy
- Use writing, painting, songwriting, and collage-making arts for healing, meaning-making, legacy, and hope
