Recently I was speaking with a friend who suffered a traumatic loss several years ago. Their loss was still fresh in their mind and heart. The weight of tragedy has only slightly diminished over time, and they struggle daily to maintain, be present for their family, do their job, have a social life.
I was reminded of people attending the workshop The Universal Experience. Participating in and assisting Alan on this powerful workshop I have witnessed people who have suffered painful losses. They may have been divorced, lost their job, lost a dear friendship. They may have suffered the death of a parent, partner, sibling, or child. Some have been trapped in their grief, some stuck in flatness. Some have valiantly striven to be “normal” all the while still suffering inside.
Alan’s structures put you in touch with your whole range of emotions, freeing the places that have become trapped. They integrate feeling with thinking and doing, bringing breath and love back into the center of being.
“The unique processes and meditations of The Universal Experience restore death as an infinite mystery, and life as your very personal journey of embracing all it has to offer, including its ending. In the most natural way, your own experience in these 3 days also gives you all you need to be able to be there with wise and caring presence for loved ones, friends and others coming to the end of their lives.”
