EventsDeath and loss are inevitable, yet few of us are prepared–spiritually, emotionally, physically or practically. Opening to the reality of change and loss provides a profound opportunity for growth and transformation. It can redefine the way we see ourselves and inform the way we live. But facing change with an open heart takes practice. Secrets of Life and Death offers these events to provide a safe and supportive place for this practice.
