Conscious Death, Dying & Beyond ...

There is a way to “prepare for” and “move through” the death & dying process from a conscious and awake perspective. Myself and Melinda Bern, decided to explore the reality of our own eventual death from this perspective and we were led to develop a program called “Conscious Death & Dying” which we now wish to share with others.


“According to the wisdom of Buddha, we can actually use our lives to prepare for death . we can make every moment an opportunity to change and to prepare wholeheartedly, precisely, and with peace of mind – for death and eternity.” ~ Tibetan Book of Living and Dying


A personal on-line program, is comprised of readings, writing exercises, inner exploration, and the below guided meditations. The program is filled with bits of wisdom, understandings, direct experiences, and practical guidelines from leaders in the field of “Conscious Death & Dying” – Sogyal Rinpoche, Elizabeth K. Ross, Steven Levine,

Adi Da Samraj, and others.


What these notable authors, teachers, and trail blazers have discovered is that, in the end, “Dying reveals itself as a profound process of spiritual transformation . . .”

Their extraordinary findings are presented here to include the experiences of Melinda,

a retired nurse with hospice experience, and myself, a meditation trainer and coach.

"Being Still"

In our fast paced lifestyle it is important to stop and be still to nurture yourself deeply -- from the inside out.  Meditation is a very effective tool for self-care.  This Meditation Retreat has been created with this in mind.


In this Meditation Retreat, you will be given a way of Being Still in the "eye in the center of the storm which is absolutely still and free of any outside influences.

This guided meditation "Being Still" is a self-care meditation that gently but directly guides you into this place of strength and confidence - peace and calm within you.  As you continue to use this meditation on a regular basis, you will also be learning how to access this place of peace and calm for yourself and continue remaining objective with what arises in your daily life.

An Inquiry Process:

There is a fixed state ...

sleep, dream and waking states are mere movements in it.

The pictures move on the screen, but do not affect it.

This is the true and natural state of being."

~ Ramana Maharshi

This natural state of being is the Radiant Heart.  In this guided Inquiry meditation.  I invite you to relax into the process of opening and awakening as this One Heart lived here and now.
