Befriending Small Deaths – Big Deaths

Dominie Cappadonna

May 10–12, 2013

Tuition $160 + 2 nights

Approaching death with curiosity, courage and spiritual skills allows for fearlessness in facing the unknown. The small deaths of broken-heartedness, sickness, aging, loss of work and more, offer us practice moments that apply to the big death at the end of life. Relating in a profound way with our small deaths, we build resilience and positive qualities to strengthen our encounter with dying moments as they arise.

We meet inside the Great Stupa and burial grounds for gentle experiential processes and meditations that draw upon universal principles, as well as Shamanic and Buddhist teachings. For individuals and those who work in the death and dying field.
