Conscious Living, Conscious Dying
The moment is a portal to the infinite. Making the Moment Matter is a path towards deepening your relationship to who you are as you meet each moment, which, in turn, enriches what you get out of every moment. In Making the Moment Matter: Conscious Living, Conscious Dying, you are invited to deepen your appreciation of your existence – the clear deep pool of all your moments – in the context of existence itself.
Conscious Living, Conscious Dying is an 8-week class designed to help people integrate their lives by viewing their various developmental stages and pivotal phases from a more conscious and comprehensive perspective. This integration serves as the basis of understanding from which to explore who they are in addressing the end of their lives.

This program is for anyone seeking answers to the bigger questions in life as well as people facing the immanent death of themselves or a loved one. It is for people who have survived a Near-Death-Experience who wish to make sense of what they experienced, both during and since the incident. And it is for people dealing with end of life issues, or simply seeking purpose, meaning, or fulfillment at any stage of life.
