One key to liberation in life.....End of Life Reflection Practice

“For any culture/person who is primarily concerned with meaning, the study of death – the only certainty life holds for us – must be central, for an understanding of death is the key to liberation in life”.      Stanislav Grof

 Conscious Dying Education gives caregivers the opportunity to engage in self-reflective experiential activities regarding their own life and death. This self-reflection decreases the gap between current unhealthy life situations and their vision for good life and death.

Self Liberation Activity:

  1. Look at the prompts on the photo above and Answer this question in 6-10 sentences: "What earthly burden would I be relieved of if I were to die today?"  Whatever the answer is, you can be sure that lifting this burden is the key to your liberation in life NOW.
  2. Identify one simple action that you can take to decrease the effect of this burden in your life.
  3. Share this with someone who cares for you, someone whom you trust, and make a commitment to them to take the action within the next week. Ask this person to check in with you at the end of 7 days.
