About the event
If today were to be your last day on Earth, would you live differently?
Death is a topic that is commonly avoided in modern society and yet this vital step in the process of life is something we all have in common. Each one of us is intimately interwoven with the presence of Death, whether it be experiencing the loss of loved ones, acknowledging beliefs, patterns and relationships that are falling away, and our own inevitable end.
Join us at the Sanctuary in Hopewell Junction, NY, to share our hearts over chocolate truffles, allow space for grief, and offer homage to Death and all the lessons that come with the process.
In this workshop participants will pair up with a few different individuals to enjoy decadent herbal and medicinal mushroom infused truffles wrapped in thought-invoking prompts. These questions will open us up to our own beliefs, edges and experiences around Death, creating a container for contemplative heart-opening connection. There will be a writing segment and then we will move into a community grief ritual, holding space for loved ones who have passed, our more than human kin that are dying at an increasing rate and those who are actively in the process of dying and beliefs, relationships and paths that we are gracefully handing over to Death.
This is a sacred container and safe space to open ourselves up. All personal information shared will not leave the container. We ask that you show up promptly 15 minutes early, reserve your spot ahead of time and inform us if you have any food allergies.
*All truffles are vegan, gluten free, soy and refined sugar free.
This event is currently sold out, ~however~ we are planning to run it again in a few months - so if it called to you, please add yourself to the waiting list by clicking RSVP on this page, and be notified of the next Death & Chocolate workshop.
* Exact address to the Sanctuary will be sent after registration.
