What do dreams, near-death experiences (NDE) and archetypal phenomena surrounding death tell us about the mysteries of life, death, and the beyond? How do dreams help prepare us for death—our own—and for the passing of loved ones? How do our worldviews alchemically change through these experiences?

When someone we love is dying or when we come close to death ourselves, the boundaries between these worlds can become very thin, and mysteries of life, death, and the beyond can reveal themselves, opening us to life-changing understandings in the imaginal realms of reality. Find out how these experiences of the threshold between life and death can inform us and transform us.

This workshop explores experiences and questions we live with regarding death and the beyond. Drawing on years of doctoral research at UC San Diego Medical Center on dreams of the dying and of decades of working with people in the dying process—as well as personal experiences on the edge of life and death—Wikman will help us investigate dreams, synchronicities, and experiences of archetypal phenomena surrounding death. This material portrays and intimates the multidimensional living mysteries of the subtle body realms that unite spirit and matter.
