Of all footprints,
That of the elephant is supreme;
Of all mindfullness meditations
That on death is supreme.
We will all die, but how often do we admit this to ourselves? Modern society tells us that its macabre to dwell on death, and yet every spiritual tradition in the world, Including the Yogic and Tantric paths, include meditations on death as part of their repertoire. The Yogic tradition specificially tells us that meditating on death, facing one’s on mortality, has so many benefits; it brings one more immediately into the present moment, helps one to practice aparigraha – letting go, and prepares one for their actual death.
In this workshop we will explore what Yoga offers in regards to death from two angles:
- The death of others, in which we will learn to help those in the dying process to die peacefully and with grace
- One’s own death, how bringing awareness to death can positively affect our life and raise our consciousness
This workshop uses both lecture and exercises to transmit an integrated knowledge from a Variety of sources – the Yogic and Tantric Traditions, the Tibetan Book of the Dead, modern Western psychology, studies into near death experiences, and more. The practical aspect of the course includes a variety of Yoga techniques; meditations, visualizations, and rituals. Though the subject is the most serious one that exists, it will be approached directly and honestly, and there promises to be even moments of light heartedness and laughter.
