Conscious Dying Retreat

April 20, 12:00 pm - April 23, 2:00 pm

A Certified End of Life Doula by ‘Preparing the Way’ and Member of NDAN, Charlotte facilitates this life changing retreat using her Shamanic practises and personal experiences with Death.
“The Elders have told me that in the West people have forgotten how to die, that the dead are walking among us…and this rings true to me in so many ways, dying is a human initiation that has of late been brushed aside and placed in a dusty corner, only to become a taboo if ever brought up. In the modernised world, the very sacred and intimate act of dying has become hospitalised, severed or estranged even from the actual person who is dying. It is my desire, alongside with many other people in the death advocacy industry and Elders across this world, to bring active dying back into the consciousness of our community. Dying is an important initiation of the human Life experience, and when done consciously it eases the bereavement of our loved ones who are left behind.” ~ Charlotte Skyla Westerlundh
During four days, this retreat will offer you the opportunity to truly reflect upon the reality of Death, the mortal body and the immortal Soul. In this retreat, you will be taken through shamanic processes supporting release, journey to past lives for recapitulation, and reflect upon and hopefully embody what it means to befriend Death, and how this embodiment can change how you live your Life henceforth. You will come away with an understanding of how to create your own Death Plan, which is equally important as a Birth Plan, and how planning your own death and funeral prior to dying will help the grieving process of your loved ones left behind.
This retreat will offer a safe place for our stories to be shared, for personal legacies to be created, and can help you in your journey of conscious dying.
