Loving, Dying, and Letting Go


$250.00 $100.00

What does it mean to love?
What does it mean to die?
And how can we let go? 

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.

All are welcome to join author, doula, and hospital chaplain, Amy Wright Glenn for a transformative and personal exploration of these questions.

Throughout the duration of the Covid-19 pandemic, all Institute online courses are $100 USD ~ open to all.

Loving, Dying, and Letting Go is offered as a 5-hour, in person workshop.

Loving, Dying, and Letting Go is also offered as a self-paced, recorded course which includes eight hours of teachings (organized into four 2-hour modules) with Amy Wright Glenn via webinar.

For those who prefer to interact live, in a group setting with a trained facilitator ~ the in-person options makes good sense. For those who prefer quiet, introversion, and ample time to reflect ~ the self-paced, online course is the better option. Some choose to take both! Either way, three key themes are present throughout:

What does it mean to love?
What does it mean to die?
And how can we let go? 

Amy’s book Holding Space: On Loving, Dying, and Letting Go ~ published by Parallax Press ~ is the central to our study.

Three Key Themes

What does it mean to love? How is attachment formed? What are the various types of love known in human experience? How do you love? Who do you love?

What does it mean to die? How do various world traditions approach the topic of dying? When have you known death? What are your hopes and fears?

How can we love fully in a world of letting go? What does it mean to hold space for loss? How do you work with the energies of fear? How can we embody healthy attachment and reconciliation to loss?

In both the in-person and online course, participants are asked to integrate knowledge gained and share ~ through writing and small group/partner/personal reflections ~ what it means to love, die, and let go given their own specific life circumstance, relationship context, work etc. Participants are encouraged to work with the energy of fear, transform the energies of hurt, and move forward in loving, dying, and letting go with great courage.

All participants are required to read Holding Space  so they can more deeply apply the questions outlined above to their own life journeys. To receive a certificate of completion, participants must complete the training ~ and in the case of the online platform ~ successfully turn in written work.

Scholarship are available.

If you have any questions, contact Amy.
