At a sure end, many do ask themselves quietly and otherwise, "How did I do with the life I lived?                      

An Existential Edge

Beginning with End

from Body Mind Metaphor LLC

Conversing with Death is a mentoring program built for mental health and healthcare disciplines, clergy, magicians, death doulas, yoga instructors, and other caregiving professionals.

Rather than a "how to help others,' this educational program helps one cultivate an awareness that will change how we live now and interact with others.

By beginning with end in mind, we do make better decisions!


Last Breath Awareness is filled with exercises to help you help you cultivate death awareness.

It even has a step-by-step one month calendar to help.

Once familiar with the practice, the book offers an intensive, detailed exercise to test your growing responses to your own impermanence.

A great resource to help clients and patients.

Conversing with Death is important to me as a concept and a practice - as I'm working constantly with those who are facing death. It is important for me to ensure that my own bias is known and this book has allowed a deeper exploration of this allowing me to explore deeper with the clients I serve. B.H. MSW

Conversing with Death Peer Group

We often have little room to talk, whether it is the loss of a loved one or dear friend. We have less room if we are reflecting on our own future passing, whenever that might be. The Conversing with Death Peer Group holds your story with honor. And talking about aging, illness, the death of a loved one, or our own impermanence is exactly what we do. On the first or second Fridays of the month, we meet from 10:30-12pm. We use unique exercises that I've developed over the years; sometimes we talk; and many times we just listen.

If you are a mental or healthcare professional, clergy, death doula, work in hospice, or provide some sort of caregiving service to the aging, the ill, or the dying, Conversing with Death Peer Group is ready to receive you. There is one prerequisite, though. To become a member, you must complete the Conversing with Death Intro Workshop.

Testimony on Conversing with Death

I feel you helped me enter a new space...it was a visceral and meaningful experience. E.B. LPC, LMFT

I...had an ethereal dream after the workshop concerning angels and peace, joy, etc. A.C. LCSW, Ed.S

I have been working with Kevin on Conversation with Dying and have grown in my own comfort in working with the thoughts and feelings related to dying. It is a profound thing to take the time to talk about and study these issues. Kevin's approach and excerises to broaden the experience of dying have added to my life and my social work practice. It is worthy work and tine spent.
