Every fall, author, doula, and hospital chaplain, Amy Wright Glenn offers a transformative and personal exploration of these questions in an 13-hour, live, online workshop.
Have you recently experienced grief due to death or the loss of an important relationship? Are you a caretaker working with the bereaved? Do you wonder what it means to face your own death, or the death of those you love? If so, this workshop is for you.
Participants will gather online for four weekly evenings from 6:30-8:30pm EST. Eight hours of the workshop consist of live, online time with Amy via webinar, and video consultation. Five hours of the workshop consist of personal reading, writing, and study.
Participants in overseas time zones, or those who are unable to attend one or more of the sessions live., are welcome to watch the recordings of the four modules. Recordings will be made available to all enrolled in the workshop for unlimited access during our study. One need not attend the live modules to complete the workshop.
The four modules of Loving, Dying, and Letting Go focus on key themes present in Amy’s second book Holding Space: On Loving, Dying, and Letting Go published by Parallax Press.
Module topics include:
All enrolled in Loving, Dying, and Letting Go receive a PDF syllabus and weekly email assignments. Reading, writing, and personal reflection are central to preparing for each of the four modules and Amy is in active contact via email with those enrolled in the workshop. All participants are required to read Holding Space by Amy Wright Glenn as they apply the questions outlined above to their own life journeys. To receive a certificate of completion, participants must attend live — or view the provided recordings — of all four modules as well as successfully turn in written work.
*Members of the Institute for the Study of Birth, Breath, and Death, the National Home Funeral Alliance, and INELDA receive 50 percent off of the workshop tuition, paying $150 upon registration. Scholarships also available for those working with at-risk or marginalized communities.
