Imagine facing death without fear. Imagine using a life-threatening illness as an opportunity for spiritual awakening. We often resist change as a natural part of life but strength and healing can be found in life’s most difficult situations. This is the mission of the Living/Dying Project, offering counseling, support groups, and meditations.
The Living/Dying Project offers conscious and compassionate support in the spirit of mutual exploration to those facing life-threatening illness, to their caregivers, to those facing life’s most difficult situations, and to anyone committed to spiritual transformation.
The core work of the Living/Dying Project is healing — healing of body, mind, and spirit. Healing inspired and motivated by the preciousness of human life and by the fact that we will all die but we don’t know when.
For anyone confronted with a life-threatening illness, finding conscious and compassionate support for deep healing is essential. For those who are not facing a life-threatening illness, investigating our mortality and the preciousness of life can allow us to lead a fuller, richer life with more courage and less fear.
Regardless if one has a life-threatening illness or not, the work is the same. Using wisdom gathered from decades of guiding the dying, intensive meditative and devotional practices, and the study of how our psychological development often limits the fruits of our spiritual practice, Living/Dying Project offers face-to-face, telephone, and online opportunities for deep exploration of healing. The services, practices, and guidance offered are tailored to each individual.
The Open Circle program is free and offers support to anyone who may be newly diagnosed or who already has been dealing with a life-threatening illness. One who wishes to use this critical life event as an opportunity for awakening can receive counseling, evaluation and discussion of the client’s spiritual needs, discussion of the meaning of healing, guided meditation, relaxation, centering, learning how to connect with caregivers, and become aware of the obstacles to healing.
Find meditation, devotional, and energy practices that will bring meaningful change into your life. These ongoing small support groups explore how our emotional patterns, reactions to life situations, and meditation experiences can reveal what is asking to be healed. These will not be meditation groups, but groups which use meditation to facilitate deep inner work bringing a sense of connection — connection with other and with self.
Chris Beaudry facilitates a support group online for those experiencing loss, bereavement, and grief. It typically includes meditation and group discussion. There’s no expectation that you attend every session. Teachings, stories, and practices will be shared. This online support group will provide an opportunity to gain perspective and engage with the grieving process in new ways. This group meets on certain Sundays at 10am California time.
RamDev Dale Borglum offers counseling services either in person or via telephone or via Zoom. He is a pioneer in the conscious dying movement and has worked with thousands of people with life-threatening illnesses and their families for over 30 years. These counseling sessions can focus on end-of-life issues, inner work, spiritual healing, meditation, and the interface where our psychology limits our spiritual progress. Fully realizing the unity of our humanity and our divinity is the core of this work.
