Death and the Only Beauty that Lasts (In-person)
Siddhisambhava has been running death workshops and retreats since 2002 and is a trained bereavement counselor.
Her job, as she sees it, is to help you explore – on the practical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level – and be better prepared for, this inevitable and mysterious part of life.
This unique workshop, which has helped hundreds of people so far, offers a series of exercises and led practices, and aims to help you develop confidence in dealing with your own death and other people's. We'll come at the topic from several different angles and it’s up to you where you go with it. You'll work as individuals, sometimes in pairs, and as a group. You do not have to do or share anything you don’t want to! She looks forward to returning to Cambridge with this work.
"The only beauty that lasts is the beauty of the human heart." Rumi
The workshop is open to all and requires no previous experience with Buddhism or meditation.
Each day will start promptly at 10am and finish at 5pm.
Please bring your own vegetarian/vegan lunch on both days.

Attending a death awareness event is definitely not for everyone. If you are ready for it though, if the time and circumstances are right, it can be incredibly helpful.
