Beyond Muscle and Bone: making death your ally in life
In shamanic tradition, death is the ultimate teacher. Death offers a perspective that helps us to reflect and to see ourselves clearly. We can invite this benevolent form of death to be an ally for us while we are living and create a good relationship with it along the way.
During this weekend workshop, we invite the great force that is death to be a loving guide and teacher for us.
- What needs to die within us to let this relationship in?
- What needs to die inside us to know ourselves as more than muscle and bone?
We will prepare together and give space to becoming conscious of where we are with death. We will then dance deeply through our stories about death before taking what we find into ritual. We will clear away old assumptions about death so that we can begin a new chapter in which death becomes our companion and guide.
Death destroys self-importance.
Death supports us to see things in perspective.
Death can be a good friend.
When we dance deep and long all that we cling to can start to fall away. Let the spirit dance the body. Experience yourself beyond muscle and bone.
