MORTAL: Living, Dying & Defining Your Legacy

  • Mount Auburn Cemetery 580 Mount Auburn Street Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138 (map)

Location: Mount Auburn Cemetery | Cambridge, Ma
COST: $10- $15
Sponsored by: Mount Auburn Cemetery
Pre-registration required | REGISTER
Time: 10:00am - 12:00pm
Instructor: Carrie Tyler

In this transformative workshop, you will explore your own mortality and what it means to lead a deeply fulfilled life.  You'll be guided through a series of thought-provoking journal prompts, yin yoga postures and a meditation on death to help you reflect on your life’s most significant events.  You'll draft your own obituary and six-word epitaph for your gravestone which tells your story, in your words, and captures exactly how you want to be remembered.

Choosing to explore your feelings about life's journey towards death is an act of bravery that allows you to get up close and personal with what is sacred.  You will gain a clear perspective on where you are now, where you want to go, and what kind of legacy you want to create.

Feel free to reach out to the instructor with any concerns. All are welcome regardless of feelings about death and dying, or yoga experience.

 Please bring: yoga mat, any yoga props you need, a photograph of yourself (framed preferable), comfy warm clothes, and a mug for tea if you want it. Come for the workshop but plan to stay to enjoy the beautiful historic cemetery grounds.
