Death Cafe – March 19, 2023
Amor Healing Kitchen – 2 Magnolia Rd.
Death cafes are part of a worldwide movement that offers an invitation to boldly explore the fate that awaits every living being. At a Death Cafe, people, often strangers, gather to have refreshments and discuss death and all of life’s many transitions. It is an accessible, respectful and confidential space with no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action. Death Cafe’s objective is “to increase awareness in relation to death while helping people make the most of their (finite) lives”. The Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counseling session.
This is a free event, please RSVP early as space is limited.
Tibetan Healing Chö Ceremony – March 26, 2023
Zoom and In-person in Charleston – Private Residence James Island (register for address)
This traditional Tibetan healing ceremony combines sacred song, ritual instruments, meditation and visualization to purify the five elements of the body and mind. It is an approach for clearing the deeper causes of imbalance which are believed to be psychological and karmic. While resolving negative energies, toxic influences and entities, it augments the forces that bring about health and generates cleansed spiritual consciousness. It can be used to resolve stubborn obstacles, either energetic or ancestral, that are difficult to access or unresponsive to other therapies. The result is greater ease in the areas of physical health, emotional peace and fulfillment in life. Register here
Bardo Chö Group Ceremony – November 1, 2022
Healing Oasis 772 St. Andrews Blvd + Zoom
Join others as we dedicate this offering to our loved ones on the other side.
The Bardo Chö is a Tibetan Buddhist ceremony performed to support the deceased, regardless of their religion, in the afterlife journey. It supports afterlife passage by creating an environment of care, love and nurturance while traversing the bardo (realm between death and rebirth) landscape. It is best done within a year of a person’s (or pet’s) transition but can be done at any time to uplift their current situation. This offering assists in healing karma, clearing obstacles and guiding the departed towards their highest spiritual goals or aspirations. In a group ceremony, the ritual is performed for multiple deceased loved ones at one time. It can be offered once or regularly. In addition to supporting the departed, it provides comfort and connection for those left behind.
