When we know ourselves, we are so much more able to meet others exactly where they are.
This course is not about death. It’s about life. And it’s not about massage therapy. It’s about how to invite more joy, more clarity and more simplicity into your life and heart…no matter what your job.
Opening to the Mystery is designed to invite you to deeply consider and even to befriend your own mortality. Lauren Cates will combine a variety of experiential, interpersonal and individual exercises that support deep inquiry and consideration of emotions and ideas about living and dying. This course provides guideposts that will lead you to embrace an honest relationship with life that will allow you to be more fully present not only with people who are dying, but also with all of the people in your life.
This course will be beneficial for any person who wants to have more access to their own wisdom and to cultivate deeper, more authentic relationships professionally and personally. Certainly, if you spend time at the bedside of people who are dying you’ll find you have more comfort there, but this course is not just for people who feel drawn to or already work in hospice care.
Past students have said that their experience in this course enlivened their practice, shifted stuck relationships and helped them to see and to love their family members/spouses in a different, more open way.
