We will investigate how consciously considering the phenomenon of death, as one of our greatest teachers in this life, contributes to our well-being and happiness while we are still living. In so doing, we begin to notice how we may experience dying in each day of our life. We live through not just our physical death, but also our loss of relationships, loss of career, loss of who we thought we were. By definition, death is simply a moment in time. Death is not the opposite of life. Death is the opposite of birth. Life has no opposite. We will engage in the principles of conscious living and dying. We will use a coaching model known as “The Best Three Months of Life.” Through reflective questions and group discussion, we will explore the five domains of self: physical, mental (life purpose), emotional, spiritual and practical. We will honor our own stories as they relate to our experiences of death and how it empowers our life. Course fee: $10 payable to the instructor at the first class for a copy of The Best Three Months of Life text.
