A weekend workshop on death and dying with Dominie Cappadonna and Valentina Naminach, January 30-31, and February 1
Approaching death with curiosity, courage and spiritual skills allows for fearlessness in facing the unknown. The ‘small deaths’ of brokenheartedness, sickness, aging, loss of work and more, offer us practice moments that apply to the ‘big death’ at the end of life. Through universal Buddhist and Shamanic principles, we’ll explore in multifaceted ways our common thoughts, feelings, and spiritual views of what has heart and meaning in living vividly and dying consciously.
