Conscious Transitions: Living with Dying

2-day Experiential Workshops        


April 25-26, 2020     Boulder, Colorado
August 8-9, 2020    Boulder, Colorado

Discover mythic and energetic tools and practices to help

ease the pain and suffering of those confronted by death 

This 14-hour experiential workshop is designed to help people approach death consciously. Participants will discover and learn a variety of techniques to help the dying and their caregivers find a measure of peace. These tools and practices will expand your understanding of preparing for death as a rite of passage, including the psychological and emotional closure needed in the dying process.

Scientists and shamans agree that those who perform personal rituals transcend the stress of loss.This program draws from the wisdom of the ancient traditions as well as current research in the field.  Participants have found their lives enriched and their work with clients transformed through the discovery of a new relationship with death. 


Step into ceremony to develop a new relationship to living with aging, dying and loss.

Conscious Transitions: Living with Dying is the signature offering of The Living & Dying Consciously Project. The course guidebook to Conscious Transitions: Living with Dying is available for an additional donation.
