Graceful Exit: Preparing for a Good Death – Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA

August 2 - August 5

A Unique In-Person Workshop by Andrew at the Beautiful and Renowned Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA – August 2 – 5, 2024

We all face death, but how many of us are actually ready for it? Whether our own demise or that of a loved one comes first, how prepared are we? This workshop offers a wide array of resources and teachings to help participants address that final unfinished business and make the most out of every moment that comes before it.

All of life is held within the context of its inevitable extinction. By acknowledging and preparing for death now, we will find ourselves living more fully and fearlessly. Join us as we celebrate the preciousness of life, and ready ourselves and others for this final journey. We will learn how to die a good death and help others pass, exploring meditations and contemplations that prepare us for letting go. As the Buddhist tradition proclaims, “If you die before you die, then when you die, you will not die.”​
