We hold the vision of a world where everyone values death as much as birth.
In the Thick of Things. Doesn’t that expression summarize your life?
Most of the time, you are in the midst of drama and minute-to-minute decisions. No time for little or insignificant things like arranging flowers, daydreaming, or spending time in nature. Gotta keep moving and focused—that’s the kind of productivity society expects, right? Why? Because productivity is accepted by many as the way to define success: competition, money, outward appearances, and complete involvement, even if accompanied by total overwhelm. Pause! What if success could be defined so that heartfelt, important things were not forgotten?
At the heart of In the Thick of Things we begin with love, kindness, guidance, commitment, and healing. These interactions are at the center of all of our offerings. You explore the unknowns around loss, death, and dying through the familiar lenses of connections, courage, communications, and spiritual empowerment. While you’re still able to make decisions about your end-of-life wishes, NOW is the ideal time to prepare for matters of loss, death, and dying. With the groundwork completed, you live more fully and peacefully.
You don’t know your expiration date. Therefore, preparation is an important gift for you and for your family. Once you’ve decided the important things and gathered required information, a joyous freedom and contentment await you. You’ve reached the “ease” in reframing end-of-life living. It’s about slowing down and drawing on your inner wisdom, shifting and transforming your fears and pain, and gaining peace of mind. It’s about balancing the present and the future. It’s about respecting death as a natural companion and teacher.
We hold the vision of a world where everyone values death as much as birth as a way to accept the natural cycle of life. Appreciation of death as a time of compassion, bonding, mystery, and sacredness demonstrates growth in awareness and love. It is a time for letting go: no control, no comparisons, no expectations. Only an open heart and mind to welcome the journey.
One symbol for this journey is the lotus flower. We chose to put this on our website since it symbolizes the personal spiritual rebirth of our awareness and growing consciousness. Seeing images in symbol form helps us to understand our nature easily.
The three distinct forms of the lotus flower are: a tightly wrapped bud, making its way to the surface to soak in the wisdom of light; a vibrant blossom, unfolding in knowledge and experience; and a mature, light-filled and resilient flower in full bloom, expanding with insight and understanding. We describe these three forms of the lotus to represent Revelation, Release, and Remergence®. The final form, Remergence, is the process of becoming whole and is the driving force that is the foundation of the work we do in our workshops – hence the workshop title: Remergence Workshops. These symbols support the inner work that is calling to you.
