The Blessings of Mortality – A Maui Weekend Workshop Series

February 1, 2019 - February 3, 2019

Spiritual Perspectives on Death and Dying from Ram Dass, Roshi Joan Halifax and Frank Ostaseski

“Love is more powerful than death. Death is the putting on of a new costume, that’s all.” – Ram Dass

What causes so much fear or discomfort for those who are facing their own death or that of their loved ones?

What techniques can we use to bring ourselves into boundlessness and insight, to come into the realization of the truth of impermanence?

Join Ram Dass, Roshi Joan Halifax and Frank Ostaseski for an intimate exploration of the blessing of our own mortality, and the ways in which we can come to terms with suffering and fear as tools for awakening.

This workshop program is intended for those in the profession of compassionate care-giving, end of life services and /or for those simply exploring their own mortality or those who maybe committed to caring for a special needs loved one.

While this program does not provide CEU’s the material covered is for “matters of the Heart” – compassionate caregiving and discovering what death can teach us about living fully.

Gina Salā, award winning vocalist, composer, musician, sound healer will serve as the program’s special musical guest.

The program, a community service, will be supported on-site by outreach programs of Hospice Maui and Doorway into Light, Maui’s leading compassionate end-of-life caregiving non-profit organizations.

Saturday vegetarian lunch will be available by Monsoon India Restaurant.  (no charge for full workshop / retreat participants or $15 cash to those who are “by session” participants)
