THE BIODYNAMICS OF DEATH AND DYING - IN PERSON OR ONLINE
* 3RD-5TH JUNE 2022 *
WITH MICHAEL KERN D.O., B.C.S.T., A.B.D., N.D.

This three-day course will explore clinical skills to help with life transitions, grieving and letting go. We will develop skills to work with the elderly and chronically ill, and find ways to support the process of dying as well as those who are left behind. This workshop will provide Craniosacral Therapists and Cranial Osteopaths the opportunity to gain confidence and develop life-enhancing skills to support clients at these critical times.

Online participants will be sent a Zoom link and a schedule of timings, so that they can participate in the practical sessions with volunteer clients at home at the same time as participants attending in-person.

Topics explored will include:

  • End of life care: chronic illness, palliative care
  • The stages of death and dying – the work of Elizabeth Kübler Ross, Tibetan perspectives
  • Completing unfinished business – reducing fear, fulfilling wishes, creating a will for dying
  • Facing death and appreciating life
  • Death as an ignition process – orienting to the heart, long tide and love; love breathing us
  • Deconstruction of a solid self – exploring the interchange between the fluid body, tidal body and dynamic stillness
  • The wholistic shift, stillpoints and letting go
  • Developing transparency to the motion of creation
  • Going out with the Tide – entering the void
  • Working with the “silent partner” and another pair of hands
  • Bereavement and grief – revisiting the 3rd ventricle
  • The “Bardos” and ritual practices
  • Finding meaning in the face of adversity
