You are invited to dialogue!

“If you are mindful at death it will not come as a surprise. You will not be anxious. You will feel that death is merely like changing your clothes.” ~ Dalai Lama.

Most of you have read or heard me reaffirm, Death is a sacred act. It is the most important moment in our life. It is also the moment of waking up. Death is inevitable no matter how repressed we make it in our culture. We will all die. How do we prepare now and discover the freedom from the fear of death to live more expanded lives?

Over the next few weeks, I will be traveling across California to lead a series of dialogues around how we as individuals and as community can open ourselves to discuss this most important aspect of our lives.  My intention is to create a safe space where we can freely discuss our deepest desires and those of our dearest loved ones with our family, friends and community.

I invite you to join me either in person or listen on the radio:

Embracing the End of Life: A Journey into Dying & Awakening

Death is simply one more aspect of being a human being, but in our culture, we’ve made it a taboo. As a result, most of us walk through life with conscious or unconscious fears that prevent us from experiencing true contentment. Embracing the End of Life invites you to lean into your beliefs and questions about death and dying, helping you release tense or fearful energy and awaken to a more vital life now.

Author – Patt Lind-Kyle
Patt’s latest book Embracing the End of Life was #1 Amazon New Release for multiple Death & Grief categories. Her book Heal Your Mind, Rewire Your Brain won the Independent Publishers Gold Medal Award and a Best Book Award from USA Book News.  Patt has written a chapter in Audacious Aging and she is also the author of When Sleeping Beauty Wakes Up.
