Your Year To Live

What would be possible for you if you could approach your own eventual death with curiosity and acceptance?

How would that change your life today?

Beautiful endings

We have learned a profound resistance to the idea of death in our culture and it keeps us living small, fearful, and so limited in our experience.

What if gently turning toward that fear and resistance held the key to profound freedom and peace? Would you be willing?

Are you finally ready to access the vital life force that’s been bound up for decades in avoidance? This life energy is who you are! It’s your birthright to enjoy.

Based loosely on Stephen Levine’s book “A Year to Live”, Durga is offering this opportunity to take a deep dive in committing to yourself in a way you never thought possible, and understand what it means to be fully ALIVE.

Are you ready to live a life of fearlessness?

THAT’S a truly human life.

The “Your Year to Live” class has really been helpful and provided something I didn’t know I needed. Talking about death and its many facets is useful, but engaging the subject deeply with a small group over time is very satisfying. A lot of nagging questions and feelings have been addressed and a richer view of that other end of life has been put in place.

This book group has been such a great process around death, dying and grief. I heartily recommend it. Durga Fuller is a fantastic facilitator. It’s been thought provoking on so many levels. Durga provides a safe place for process and ceremony and I look forward to our monthly class.
