Join us as we shed new light on death and how we care for our dying.

What will I learn?

You will gain an understanding of the stages a dying person may experience, and learn how they can be supported during this time.

You'll also develop an appreciation of non-duality and the changes of consciousness that people may experience as they die will be covered.

Other topics include management of terminal anxiety.
