The Birth, Breath, and Death workshop is a new 3-hour offering designed by Amy specifically for this training. This workshop has been created as an offering to Birth, Breath, and Death Institute Teachers who feel called to guide/support participants through 3 units of study/inquiry (about 45-minutes each) with content/theory and experiential/self-discovery components. These content areas are: birth, breath, and death.

The aim of the Birth, Breath, and Death workshop is to provide a safe space for people of all perspectives/traditions to reflect personally on what it means to hold space for birth, breath, and death and find new/deeper meaning in light of their own unique life experiences. Participants are requested to read one (or both) of Amy’s books in preparation for the workshop. Each Birth, Breath, and Death Institute Teacher will be working from a common template/platform of content that allows for individualized presentation and personalization of the material.
