It has been said that resistance to the truth of our impermanence is more the cause of our suffering, than from the actual facing of death itself. But something about the ephemeral power of music helps us to enter territories that we normally avoid, assisting us entry into this sometimes-fearful terrain. Through evocative music, practical wisdom, and interactive processes, you will become more familiar with how you deal with loss. When you can observe your circumstances with greater compassion and equanimity, you will transmute unexpected losses into poignant opportunities to reflect on your mortality in aesthetic and inspiring ways. This will inevitably lead to meaningful revelations about what and who matters most to you, resulting in a deeply felt experience of a profound gratitude for life’s simple gifts. Empowered to live each day with a remembrance of how precious life is, this afternoon workshop offers a calming respite from the incessant losses you’ve been facing within your community during recent months.

You will learn exciting methods to release lingering pain from life’s losses and develop a lasting gratefulness that will show you how to live each day as if it were your last.

Provider approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing, Provider Number CEP5310 for 3.5 contact hours.

Space is limited.
