Completing our own version of a life review now while considering the inevitability of death can be a great catalyst for us to take steps to live our lives from a place of what truly matters.
Individuals who proclaim to have had near death experiences often report to not only make major changes in their lives afterwards, but also to realize in their life review that it was their seemingly small actions that had the greatest effect; a conversation, an act of generosity, a smile, etc. What matters most may be the innumerable opportunities we have to live to our true potential in every. single. moment. Yet, there are many aspects of life that can easily dominate our time and energy that reveal themselves to be unimportant when death comes close. The effects of this are not always clear until very late in one’s life, as well as the realization of what a robbery of life that has been.
We will ask big questions together about how we may live our lives in alignment with what matters most. We will see what arises intuitively through experiential exercises.
