Death and Dying: Embracing a Positive Relationship with Mortality
A Workshop with Bodhisattva Yoga Instructor Morgan
When: Sunday, September 27th, 2015
Where: Bodhisattva Yoga, Park Slope, Brooklyn
Registration fee: $45
Death, the dying process, and our own mortality are often challenging subjects to discuss. This 1½ hour workshop is uniquely designed to illuminate the shadows one often confronts as they begin to explore issues around death and dying. As these issues are often associated with fear and worry, this workshop will give the participants an opportunity to openly and honestly challenge common fears and concerns and view mortality in a more enlightened and positive way.
Morgan sees daily how her own practice of relying on mindfulness, presence, and the Bodhisattva Yoga ideal of altruism, empower her to create an environment of peace, love, and ultimately compassionate concern for her patients, their families and her colleagues. In this workshop, Morgan will utilize personal experiences, research and study, Dharma inspired practices, and her own heartfelt passions to expose the truths around care of the dying, and indeed our own deaths. Her aim is to create a supportive setting in which participants may become more comfortable with death and the dying process and perhaps find meaning and life purpose in the very essence of it.
Morgan has been a Registered Nurse for 8-years. She provides patient and family centered care for the catastrophically and terminally ill on the Palliative Care Unit at The Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan. She began her practice at Bodhisattva Yoga 5-years ago and graduated from theAwaken Your Inner Warrior™ Teacher Training program in 2013 under the peerless leadership and guidance of Vivekan. Practicing at Bodhisattva Yoga has been transformative in her life both personally and professionally.
Morgan has attended several conferences, workshops, and lectures pertaining to end of life care, death, and dying. She recently co-authored “When Death is Near”, a published informational booklet that seeks to educate and inspire the reader to understand, embrace, and participate in the dying process.
