Becoming Familiar with Dying

8:45 am - 11:00 am

Transforming TraumaBecoming Familiar with Dying

Meeting monthly this class will examine the dying process through the dissolution of the elements that constitute us as human beings: Earth, Water, Fire, Wind, Consciousness and Space.

Each class will be divided into two parts. We will begin each class with an overview and discussion of the element that we will concentrate on for the month. In this way, we will have a month to become more familiar with each of the fundamental elements of our existence. The second part of each class will be a guided meditation of the dissolution of the elements leading to medical & subtle body death. The meditation will be accompanied by the playing of Tibetan bowls, which provides a sound environment of safety and security.

Through this process of a month-long examination of each of the elements and the guided meditation of their dissolution we can become familiar with the dying process.

Seven Sessions: Class meets in Boulder, 8:45-11 am. third Saturday of the month; September 23, October 21, November 18, December 16, Jan 20, Feb 17, March 17.

Cost is$200 for all seven sessions. Please make check payable to  Dominie Cappadonna, PO Box 230, Boulder CO 80306. Payment requested by September 15, 2017.

We have had the privilege of offering One Year to Live and other seminars. We find it of great value personally and with others to prepare for our dying, as a skillful and kind way to feel less bewildered, overwhelmed, frightened or in pain at the time of our death.
