Weekend Workshop: Dying Consciously: The Greatest Journey

Saturday/Sunday March 10-11

with Dr. JiHyang Padma

The Dying Consciously Program is a service dedicated to helping people make their final transitions. It is designed for all people involved in the dying process: the individual, caregivers, family members and friends. It offers a message of hope with easy to follow steps: it is possible to bring dignity and peace back to the dying process.

Weekend Workshop: Creative Fire with Brian Rill Ph.D.

Saturday/Sunday March 17-18

Creativity is the dance between what we know and what we don’t know, a tension between possibility and constraint. The challenge is to awaken particular energies that help our creativity flourish, and to interrupt disruptive energies that kill our creativity. In this weekend seminar you will learn how to identify and work with these energies to become an inner commander of your own creative enterprise, able to harness your potential at will and with skill.
