Suggested Donation: $405

Tuesday, 19 March – Friday, 22 March 2019

Death touches all of us––sometimes from afar, sometimes up close and intimately personal, sometimes through our service in the world. In this unique, experiential Wisdom Arts for Dying workshop you will safely and creatively explore your personal readiness for dying well in a natural dying process. Deepen your knowledge about the conditions and tools you need to make it so. 

Rev. Carré draws from ancient to modern spiritual care and healing arts modalities and from research findings related to expanded states of consciousness and near death experiences. This workshop is suitable for adults of all faith traditions, or none. It is especially recommended for those serving as chaplains, social workers, therapists, nurses, physicians, hospice workers, death doulas, and personal or professional caregivers. 

This intensive retreat class is limited to 12 people.

Program participants learn to:

  • Move through fear to love
  • Navigate expanded states of consciousness
  • Incorporate healing arts of spiritual care, yoga, breathwork, aromatherapy, sound, and subtle energy
  • Use writing, painting, songwriting, and collage-making arts for healing, meaning-making, legacy, and hope
