Did you know that 75% of us have not had end of life discussions, and that 60% think we don’t talk about death enough?
We talk about so many things – jobs, sports events, family happenings, holiday plans – but there’s one topic almost everybody avoids: death. The vast majority of us go through life behaving as if it will never happen. When the time comes, we are caught unprepared.
Would you like to live a joyful, purposeful life and face death fearlessly? Take this chance to explore the yogic perspective of death. Be inspired by powerful stories of ordinary people’s extraordinary passing. Take practical steps towards creating a conscious death plan for yourself and learn how to support loved ones on the ultimate journey. Bring your questions! Our panel have a wealth of wisdom and real life experience to share.
This fascinating and valuable seminar will explore how the yoga tradition understands and deals with the subject of death. The wisdom of the yoga texts will serve as a resource to provide insight into how we can best prepare for a fearless and peaceful departure.
