Savasana: Exploring our Death to Liberate our Lives
November 28, 2021 –
About this event
This workshop is a rare and unique opportunity to explore your relationship with death and dying in a safe and sacred setting. Opening to this realm, especially in this time of great uncertainty, liberates us to live our lives with greater freedom and clarity.
No experience with Yoga required, just a willingness to show up with open-hearted presence.
Why would we want to explore death?
It may sound rather morbid at first glance and yet my experience is that this practice awakens more joy than any other that I have encountered.
How could this be so?
Because at the root of all of our fears lies the fear of death – our own and our loved ones.
There is something magical that happens when we contemplate this ultimate letting go. We realize the preciousness of life, and we awaken the courage to be more fully alive. When we honor and acknowledge the full range of feelings associated with death, we empower ourselves to move into our lives with greater confidence.
The practice of Savasana is not only a practice of relaxation and integration, it is also an opportunity to explore the deepest layers of our being. We begin with deeply relaxing the physical, and move on to relaxing our mental and emotional attachments and concepts.
Finally, as our identity softens, we begin to sense the eternal aspect of our being, and receive a glimpse into who and what we are beyond form, beyond time, beyond death.
In this workshop, we are given two rare opportunities - to explore both our own relationship with death and to be the guardian for someone taking the journey. The experience can range from one of deep rest, to profound forgiveness, to a direct experience with life after death.
Through many years of personal practice and in facilitating others, I have seen that each time we journey into this realm it is different, and perfect for what is needed.
Death is something that touches us all. Join us for this is a rare opportunity to compassionately encounter the Savasana practice as a gateway to greater aliveness.
No experience with Yoga necessary - only a willingness to authentically show up for yourself and another.
