Death as a Rite of Passage
The journey to death in our society is frequently a lonely one. Those who are dying may have no map to follow and no one to share the experience.
In this interactive presentation participants explore literal, emotional, mythic and energetic processes that enable family members, caretakers, medical and hospice staff, grief counselors, and chaplains to more actively support the dying. In doing so, participants become more engaged to witness the final passage, celebrate the accomplishment of navigating death as a rite of passage and have a greater sense of their own journey to come.
Gain a greater understanding of the importance of preparing for death as a rite of passage.
Recognize the importance of preparing for death using literal, mythic and energetic techniques.
Examine ways to offer support and develop community at the end of life.
