Teachings and Practices for Conscious Transitions

with Dr. Daniel Foor

star with star copper

Death is not a singular moment but a rite of passage that unfolds over weeks, months, or even years.

Like any initiation, the skillful care and presence of loved ones – before, during, and after death – can make all the difference for the one departing from this incarnation. Participants of this course will learn an inclusive framework and tangible skills for soul-level support of loved ones through the major transformation and change that is death of the body. Lessons consist of four 90-minute live teachings, each with guided practices and time for questions.
