What does it mean to Love?
What does it mean to Die?
How do we learn to Let Go?
The three questions above are central to human life. Philosophers and spiritual leaders throughout time have reflected upon them. Wise ones across all ages and cultures have offered up their own insights into answering these perennial queries. And, of course, all of us ~ all who know birth, breath, and death ~ wrestle at times with what it all means. What does it mean to love, die, and “let go”?
The Loving, Dying, and Letting Go workshop is designed to create a safe space for heartfelt inquiry into these questions. People of all philosophies and faith traditions are warmly welcomed to gather together to listen and learn through lecture, discussion, meditation and experiential exercises, and most importantly, to personally reflect upon the questions above. Gentle yoga movement will keep us bright throughout the day.
For those who have experienced grief due to death or the loss of an important relationship, for those who are caregiving or working with the bereaved, or for anyone wondering what it means to face one’s own death, or the death of those we love ~ this workshop will be particularly moving/beneficial.
Loving, Dying, and Letting Go is based upon the work/writing of Amy Wright Glenn, founder of the Institute for the Study of Birth, Breath, and Death. The key themes of the workshop are present in Amy’s second book, Holding Space: On Loving, Dying, and Letting Go published by Parallax Press in 2017. Workshop participants are encouraged to read the book prior; however a few copies will also be available for purchase at the workshop.
