Death is not the opposite of life, but a part of it. – Haruki Murakami
Every Yoga class ends with Savasana, or corpse pose; a regular invitation to practice dying. In learning to welcome death as an inevitable part of every life, we can more fully embrace and celebrate the preciousness of our lives.
This workshop will support you in working with your own fear of death, which the Yoga Sutras call Ahbinivesha. It is said that Ahbinivesha is the mother of all the Kleshas: the 5 main causes of human suffering. Opening to death is opening to the fullness of life and serves as the alternative to remaining locked in a hopeless embrace with fear.
Through this one day workshop Dana Reece, PhD will help you explore your relationship with death and opening through kundalini yoga meditations, pranayama, and creative writing. Discussion will include how to use your revelations and Yogic practices in to also support others as they face death in their lives as a beautiful opportunity to help someone find peace and healing in the midst of their pain and fear.
