Death is the wisest advisor we have said spiritual teacher Carlos Castaneda. How can we use our imminent death from our body to inform how we live our life? Why is it so often that only death, or the threat of death from serious illness, leads us to truly "wake up" to the preciousness of life and claim what is OUR life that we are here to live? Without the usual cliche's about "finding" life purpose as if it's some thing out there or needing to find "your path", Gina will share what it felt like to be born into a space of loss, where death was a very unwelcome "advisor".

How can we claim the awareness and liberation that people have from facing death without having to do that? Is that possible? Can we embrace what we know to be sacred without taking it for granted as we so often do? What if we chose to eat cake for breakfast if we wanted to because we knew this day could be our last? How would our life be different if we could orient ourselves to truly live as if it was? How would you live differently right now so you can look back on your last day and say, "I have no regrets" and "I am not afraid." Death is the wisest advisor we have, often coming without an invitation. Welcome it as we explore together the opportunity we have to "seize the day" - without pressure and guilt - only with love.

Class time devoted to lecture: 31-45 minutes
