When Death Finds You, Will It Find You Alive?

There’s an African proverb, “When death finds you, will it find you alive”? At some point, we’re called to consider whose life we are actually living, and what a well-lived life means to us. How might death (ours or others’) give us permission to fully live?


What is undone in your life that needs your reflection and attention? This workshop invites you to dive deep into those unlived places within yourself and consciously choose to let them die or bring them to life. Individually, and in a community, we will explore what it means to live a conscious and intentional life, including:

- How are my choices enlivening or deadening my life?

- What has been calling to me that I’ve ignored for years?

- What are the words and truths around which I organize my life and how do they contribute to a meaningful life?

- What are my guideposts?
