Weave in Ends: remembering death as a gift to life is a small group program that invites death-curious adults of all ages and in all stages of living and dying, into deep conversation and practice with death so they can grow their capacity and resources to live and die honorably – with intention and integrity.
Whether we are aging with a terminal illness or in good health with an expected long life ahead, none of us know exactly when or how we will die. In our most astute moments, however, we remember that death is a fate that awaits us all.
Deep consideration of this foundational element of humanity - imminent death and awareness of it - opens us up to a sort of magic, capable of stripping away all that is distracting, peripheral, and beyond our control while bringing to the center of consciousness all that remains raw, incomplete, or out of alignment with our core values named and unnamed.
In this course, we will enter brave space and engage with longstanding patterns of fear, anxiety, inaction, and silence around death by listening, speaking and taking action to establish, examine and/or redefine our relationship with death.
Through embodied practices and conversations with ourselves and others, guidance from skilled facilitators, and wisdom from those who have traversed the terrain before us, we will contribute to the necessary work of mending the delicate fabric of life, doing our part to restore its integrity and vitality for generations to come.
"Working with Lisa has initiated huge changes in my days, because creating a death plan actually felt like committing to a more sincere, wholistic, purposeful path toward life. She helped me become clear on what is important for the time I have left in this world and since none of us ever know how long that will be, I realized that there was so much I had been waiting to do for some unforeseeable time in the future. Our sessions helped me to understand how much I had been holding back due to fear, insecurities and/or the assumption that there would always be more time. But the idea of "more time" quickly became an illusion during our work together, and the reality of life's preciousness stood in its place instead. Lisa is an extremely patient, compassionate and wise woman, whom I felt entirely comfortable opening up to and being guided by. I'm so grateful she is offering this deeply necessary, rich service to the world, and recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone longing to live a more full and fulfilling life."
