Death & Dying, A Workshop Series with Selena Morresi

Death and Dying Workshop:

Death touches all of our lives. It is a part of the natural flow of nature; as things arise and fall, so shall we all. Let the seasons help guide us through an exploration of grief, death and dying.

Beginning this winter starting January 19th 2018, we will meet once a season to explore grief, death and dying and allow the quality of the seasons to guide us. The goal of this workshop is to explore what we fear about death, how we can find meaning in death, how we can celebrate those who have died, and how we can prepare for our own death and live a fuller life.

Please bring a journal to write in. We will be seated on the floor during most of the workshop so feel free to bring blankets and pillows.

Winter -January 19th, 2018 6:30-8pm   Healing and embracing darker days: finding meaning in death, and acknowledging our fear of death.

Spring – April 13th, 2018 6:30-8pm  Moving from darkness to light, renewal, and finding life from death.

Summer – July 20th, 2018 6:30-8pm Embracing death through the lens of life and how we can honor and celebrate those who have died.

Fall- October 12th, 2018 6:30-8pm Contemplation and preparation for our own death and life.

The cost of each workshop is $25.  Please pre-register to attend.

Selena Morresi has always had a passion for learning and was a very curious child who loved to explore new ideas and activities. Never quite sure of what she wanted to be when she “grew up” lead to an 10 year undergrad career as she changed her major many times to explore all that college had to offer. Once Selena realized that becoming a professional student was not an option, she completed her Bachelors in Psychology and later received a Masters degree in Public Health. Selena is still learning and growing and has become a Reiki Master Practitioner, Certified Heath Educator and a Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist.  Selena is currently completing a certification in Holistic Stress Management, receiving her Reiki Master Teacher Attunement in October and plans to peruse her Death Doula certification this summer in New Mexico. Selena works as a Tobacco Treatment Specialist by day, helping people change their behavior and quit using nicotine products. At night Selena is adjunct faculty at West Chester University in the Health Department where she teaches courses that focus on Mental Health and Death and Dying.
