Join OMA for this profound and deeply soulful journey through your own death experience in a guided meditation supported by a sound bath!

One thing is certain, each of us will die one day. The good news is that we can begin to face our own mortality in this very moment, using it as a way to transform and heal our lives.

Join meditation guide, Helen Stickney, and sound and energy healer, Leza Vivio, on a journey exploring the tender impermanence of our human existence. A combined sound bath and guided visualization will gently lead us through visualizing our own death process. Contemplating the end of our lives can help us live our daily lives more fully.

The guided journey will last about 45-60 minutes. There will be discussion and preparation beforehand and time afterward for processing, emotional support and energy clearing. Please bring a yoga mat, blanket, and/or whatever you need to feel comfortable lying on the floor for an hour. There will be chairs available for anyone who would prefer not to lie down.

Please bring a journal and a yoga mat, blanket, and/or whatever you need to support your body and feel comfortable if lying on the floor is your preference for the hour (or more) of the meditation. There will be chairs available for anyone who would prefer not to lie down.

This is a live event being held at the Unity Center of Pittsburgh (5343 Kincaid St, Pittsburgh, PA 15224).  This event will NOT be broadcast online or recorded.
