What if you were told that you only had three months to live? Would knowing that your time is limited cause you to live your life differently than how you are living it today? The reality is that we are all on limited time. We will all die and none of us knows when. So why do we stay in toxic relationships or jobs with the precious limited life that we have? Why do we keep putting off that dream vacation? Why do we only have big family gatherings at weddings or funerals?
While training to become an End of Life Sacred Passage Death Doula with the Conscious Dying Institute Padma Wine learned a tool called The Best 3 Months of Life. It is usually used with terminally ill or elderly people approaching their end of life transition. What we do is look at 5 aspects of life: Mental, Physical, Emotional, Spiritual and Practical. We explore where the person feels they are today and where they wish to be in three months. Next we create real action plans based on current circumstances to support positive changes in the areas that the individual wishes to make changes or tune up.
Again, we are all facing death. Some of us are just doing it more consciously than others. Let’s face it, talking about sex doesn’t make a person pregnant, and talking about death doesn’t make a person dead. The value in using the Best 3 Months of Life planning is that one begins to live life more fully and passionately. Let’s live life more than we did just a day before, every day.
This is a three-hour workshop. Wear comfortable clothes and warm socks. Bring a water bottle, notebook and pen. Plan to be sitting on the floor with floor cushions and no shoes are allowed in the space.
