Dying To Live
Dying to Live
A five-day sacred ritual of death and rebirth
Many tribal cultures have a central ritual of death and rebirth.
It is a time of leaving the past behind,
Of settling accounts with the life you have lived,
Of releasing the small story of your life,
And growing into something larger,
Of listening to the echoes of your soul,
And intuiting the vision of your life.
Our contemporary Western culture has no equivalent ritual. People are left adrift on the sea of life, trying to find their way,
Often changing only after their life hits the wall or they suffer significant loss.
There is another way.
You can come and explore the "as if" hypothesis.
What would be incomplete in your life?
How would you experience life in that precious moment by moment
Often our fear of dying stops us, consciously or unconsciously from living fully.
The guide of the "Dying to Live" process,
has been blessed to have three near death experiences
where he went through the dying process,
journeyed through the realm of the dying and the dead,
into the moment of the eternal present,
and into the domain of the eternal presence.
He holds the door open for others to travel into these regions;
for these realms exist in all of us.
"What you encounter on the other side is between you and Spirit. I continually notice the profound transformative effect that this blessed ritual invites in people."
This is a contemporary ritual of initiation into one of the great Spiritual Mysteries.
If you don't gain significant valuable insights into your own life and the nature of your own being, then the whole 5 days is on us. We even pay for your food, and accommodation.
No questions asked. It can't get better than that, now, can it?

We are beginning to train future trainers to guide others through this sacred ritual. If this interests you ask for details.
