Til Death Do Us START Workshop: Exploring Our Own Death So We Can Say YES to Our Life


Whether you have  a few moments or 50 years of life here on earth remaining, you have a purpose and there are things you want to accomplish, experience and BE while you’re here on earth.

Through my own encounters with immortality I have learned THE greatest lessons of my life.

These experiences have:

– Galvanized me.  

-Made me feel incredibly clear about what my mission is.  

-Led me to UPGRADE my life and the way I live it.

When it’s over, I want to say: all my life

I was a bride married to amazement.

I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.

When it is over, I don’t want to wonder

if I have made of my life something particular, and real.

I don’t want to find myself sighing and frightened,

or full of argument.

I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world.

Mary Oliver

Are you ready for a life upgrade?  To have the relationships you dream about? 

To take action on those long cherished dreams of yours? 

To begin serving the creation/the Universe without resistance?

To break through your resistance to doing the things you KNOW you’re meant to be doing?  

To allow yourself to experience the things your soul longs for?

To live happy, peaceful and free?

To be able to “hold space” for others who are dying or going through a difficult transition.

Are you longing to stop holding back (or hesitating) where it matters most?

P.S.  Don’t worry! Talking about your death (happily!) will not bring it on, but it just might be the catalyst you need. 

There’s a reason that all shamans keep death as a close ally:  Befriending death enables them to do the things they came here to do. 

Death is the ultimate life coach. ~ Alice the Elephant 

Remembering we are going to die goads us to clean up our side of the street.  To take action on our dreams. To express our feelings. To heal relationships.  To forgive. To say I love you. To say I’m sorry. To let of the stuff, people and experiences that no longer serve us.

That is why I am so excited to do this work together.

Who is this experience for?  Anybody who is currently ALIVE and curious about what happens when we die and longs to LIVE a life filled with purpose and service. 

At age 19 I had a brush with death. Diagnosed with Malignant Melanoma, my infinite bright future collapsed before me.  DId I have 5 years? One year? Nobody could tell me. So, I decided that whatever time I had left, I would live it. 

At college, I stopped being such a study nerd and began going  to more parties. I met many amazing people. I sang in a Gilbert and Sullivan Opera.  I ran on a beach with a bunch of exercise fanatics on the North Sea Coast. My life got so much better.

A shamanic initiation I received at 44 brought me into deep connection with the divine. During that emotional ceremony, I encountered a profoundly loving presence (The Great Mystery/God/The Universe/The Creator) and realized that every single thing that had happened to me in my life was a gift. Perfectly orchestrated. I realized I was loved and had NOTHING to fear. After that, I began to trust life more.  

At 46, watching a stranger lose the love of his life taught me how to love my partner more deeply. 

At 51, I lost a dear friend to suicide and it led me to realize that there was no time like the present to TAKE ACTION to be more loving. 

Maybe you’ve already had a close encounter with death or a “Near-Death Experience (NDE) and know exactly what I mean?

Maybe you have had something happen that made you rethink how you are living your life?

Or, maybe you lost somebody close to you and it changed how you see your own life?

So, yeah, I am pretty pumped about what growing a closer relationship to death can do for a gal (or a guy!).  Are you up for it?

In this intimate retreat we will:

  1. Experience, with love and compassion, a Baskin Robbin sized spoonful of death so that we can gain some of the powerful benefits of a “near death experience”. Don’t worry.  This won’t involve bungee jumping.Because, why wait until the end of your life to see where we go when we die?  
  2. Get clear on what our legacy is so that we can start leaving it properly.
  3. Gain powerful insights on what it is we must do (or not do) to live in greater harmony with our soul’s directive. 

It could change everything. You can find details and register here.

“People think little about death. They spend their lives preoccupied with real absurdities, postponing things, leaving the important moments aside. They don’t risk, because they think it’s dangerous. They complain a lot, but cower when it’s necessary to take action. They want everything to change, but they themselves refuse to change. If they would think more about death, they would not leave until tomorrow the phone call that needs to be made today. They would be a little crazier. They would not be afraid of the end of this incarnation- because you cannot fear something that will happen anyway.”

-Paulo Coelho

I have designed this workshop so that you will leave:

-A little crazier (ala the Paulo Coehlo quote above)

-Feeling excited to return to your life and make it hum 

with soul resonance.

-More capable of holding space for others who are afraid, anxious or otherwise suffering.

-Feeling clear about the small steps you need to take to 

get right with the past and excited about the future.

-Feeling more reverence towards life after having tasted death. 

-Feeling pumped to step more fully into your purpose. 

-Feeling clearer about why you are here. 

-Feeling gratitude for all that you have been given.

By avoiding death, we become corpse-like.       ~ Laura Pritchett

The next retreat will be held Friday Nov 1- Sunday Nov. 3rd 2019 at Camp Aminicon
