"Dying well is one of our greatest gifts to those we love and leave behind, so they can have a healthier bereavement."

Death comes to us all, and everyone we love. Whether it's sooner or later, expected or unexpected. Building a healthy relationship with death allows us to live more presently in the here and now.

Watch the event

Join us in this one-day immersive workshop, exploring what it means to live life in order to die well.

Becoming more familiar and making friends with dying and death allows us to really live more fully – a liberation of old fears and concerns which are at the core of our human existence.

Spend a day with death walker, celebrant and educator Zenith Virago, diving into your own relationship with death, build your capacity and acceptance, so you can let go more easily for both yourself and others, and live life to its fullest.
