Magnified Grass



Sunday mornings starting April 16
(with Befriending Death Team: Leigh Ann, Kevin & Eileen)

A practical and spiritual approach to befriending death and dying.

This course provides an opportunity to investigate what’s important in our life and make changes that reflect that.

We'll bring curiosity as we explore and get intimate with our relationship around death and dying. We’re also going to get practical with the logistics, because at the end of the day, clear communication is the greatest gift we can leave our loved ones.

Course topics include:

  • Relationship with death and dying- Working with change, aging, sickness and death

  • Preparing for our own death (physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and practically)

  • Preparing for loved one's death & difficult conversations

  • Bearing witness and being with the dying 

  • Grief & embracing Life 

What to expect:

The course consists of six classes, in which all participants meet with Eileen on zoom, receive materials and assignments to digest and complete on your own.


  • 6 Sessions (90 minutes each) WITH EILEEN & ALL PARTICIPANTS

  • online with instructive talks, dynamic discussion, guided meditations, reflections and small breakout sessions

  • 2-3 HOURS for home assignments ON YOUR OWN (movie/reading/writing/conversations)

  • 6 HOURLY SESSIONS WITH YOUR SMALL GROUP OR BUDDY (at a time that works for you all)

You will meet a small buddy group in between the large group sessions for deeper discussions and to help hold each other accountable to getting your work done.


We will be meeting on zoom and I'll send a link when we get closer to our first session.
