Death Meditation: If Today was Your Last Day | April 19 | 3:30-5PM | Free
Tomorrow is not promised, yet we walk through our lives delaying dreams, not speaking Truth, playing it safe, and staying asleep. Not anymorefor today, we will taste the potency of our own death. Inspired by Ana Forrest's Death Meditation, we will journey deep into meditation and guided journaling to uncover our heart's longing and questions we've avoided too long. Together, we will unveil the blueprint for your new life. This powerful practice will transform you. Please bring a journal, a pen, and a photo of a passed loved one.
