WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?

Practices for Death is a personal development course for the general public and anyone wishing to expand their understanding of practices for death.

This course will also be helpful to End-of-Life Doulas, Coaches and Hospice professionals dealing with the spiritual dimension.

CAVEAT: ASSESS YOUR READINESS

Some honest self-assessment about readiness for the practice is required. While the practices do not involve a rumination on the morbid aspects of the dying process, for many people, thinking and talking about death evokes a range of uncomfortable feelings, including anxiety, sadness, despair, and even terror.

This will largely depend on your previous experience with death, bereavement history, and any previous difficulties processing grief. Therefore, discernment and preparation are important.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Explore several practices for death from ancient to modern practitioners, faith-based, secular, and culturally specific
  • Understand the benefits of practices for death
  • Deepen personal choices for practices for death
