Death Cafes are held all over the world. A moment in space and time to reflect on death in a safe and open-minded space.
How we feel about it, our personal experiences, our hopes and fears.
I am a trained Death Doula (death companion) and run these events to create a safe space for us to speak freely, without taboos or awkwardness, about a sacred – and maybe terrifying for you – moment that all of us will face one day. Or to share openly our experiences of others dying and how we really felt, not how we thought we were supposed to feel.
Just come with your heart and soul. Exact venue tbc, somewhere in Ubud. Suggested contribution of 50k Rp will go to community projects. Get a ticket
As prep you might be interested in this meditation to develop our relationship with both life and death.
This is a relaxation practice that requires you to lie on your back on the floor (like you do at the end of a yoga class), as comfortably as possible – use several cushions and a duvet or blanket – to create yourself a cosy space. As you lie there I will guide you through your Yoga Nidra session.
Benefits reported by those participating in Yoga Nidra include
relief from physical or mental pain
improved ability to rest the mind, less frenetic mental activity
a sense of coming home to your true self
peace, contentment, bliss
In this one hour weekly class there will be time to ask questions and raise any concerns as well as to experience a Yoga Nidra session. You can attend a single class, and you may find it more beneficial to have a regular attendance.
If you cannot make the time of the live session, you can order a recording and listen in your own time. You may also want to do both.
