A good death includes one or more SHARED CROSSINGS - beautiful experiences with someone at the end of their life that are full of love, connection, communication and meaning.
Shared Crossings affirm that:
Loved ones across the veil are alive and well
We will be reunited with our loved ones again
Loving relationships continue
I imagine you want a shared crossing for yourself and your loved ones.
The challenge is that most people fear dying and believe they will never see their loved ones again. This makes sense because death can be a painful and stressful experience especially if you are not prepared. In our culture, death is shrouded in mystery. It is viewed as the ultimate finality - the end of all things.
This daunting cultural perspective of death leaves us as collective “deer in the headlights” when it inevitably occurs. As such we avoid discussing death, dismiss sincere consideration of life after death, and when death and the accompanying grief naturally do ultimately arrive, we feel immense social pressure to “get over it” and move on.
The cumulative effects of this are that we know extraordinarily little about the death and dying process, let alone the shared crossings that validate that our relationships with loved ones do endure beyond death.
That’s why I created this webinar as a guide for how to prepare for the spiritual aspects of death and dying.
This free webinar will introduce you to shared crossings, the steps to prepare for a good death, and practices that can facilitate shared death experiences and other shared crossings.
This webinar will introduce you to the methods that will enable you and your loved ones to:
MANIFEST a conscious, connected and loving end of life experience.
ENABLE a shared death experience and other shared crossings.
REALIZE that our bonds with loved ones continue beyond human death.
