A good death is a beautiful gift. This course raises awareness about shared death experiences, which are extraordinary experiences in which people report sharing in a dying loved one’s transition to a benevolent afterlife.

It teaches end-of-life practitioners and others about the possibility of having a conscious, connected, and loving end of life experience for those in your care, your loved ones and yourself; and supports the open exploration of death, dying, and what might be possible at the end of life and beyond.

Over 7 weeks, you will gain a deeper appreciation for the nature of death and dying and see new possibilities for continuing connections with deceased loved ones. In essence, you will be able to help those in your care change their relationship to death from one of fear and uncertainty to one of acceptance and wonder. 

By the end of this course, you’ll experience: 

  • Recognizing we are spiritual beings that evolve together, both in life and in death
  • Awe inspiring possibilities at the end of life and beyond 
  • A realization that death is not an ending but a beginning 
  • The power of talking freely with others about death and dying  
  • Getting in touch with your intuitions about life and death 
  • How to apply this realization towards improving the experience of those in your care, as well as here and now in your own life. 
  • A deeper appreciation of the dying process through personal exploration techniques
