Alive for Now: Using Death as a Teacher to Thrive in Life

Hosted by Jessica Murby

Alive for Now: Using Death as a Teacher to Thrive in Life
What if this often avoided subject of death is the very thing we need to explore in order take action on what matters most to us in life?

This is a guided journey in using action-based practices for thriving in life that are otherwise quite easily diverted for a lifetime.

We will draw on Bronnie Ware’s ‘The Top 5 Regrets of the Dying’ to consider our priorities within this precious life we have.

It may sound extreme to need to remind ourselves of death in order to take action on what really matters to us in life. However, when acknowledging death’s inevitable truth, it in a way makes perfect sense that a reminder of it is the ‘extreme’ we need to act despite the level of resistance that can be present.

We will explore ideas such as … What really matters most to us when considering death? How might we use death as a teacher? What if life wasn't finite? How do we keep the awareness of death with us as a tool for positive change?
