About the Course

The Centre for Contemplative Creative Science presents this unique two-day 

online course presenting the 1st part of the 'Embodied Mind Training' series

on 'Cycles of Life' in human beings. During these 8 hours, we will discuss what

is usually not discussed, and use meditation and contemplative creative

practices to explore life transitions and changes we encounter from pre-birth

to elderly stages of life. If you are interested to learn and understand better

your experience as a human being this course is for you. However, be aware

that we will investigate subjects such as mental health, sickness, disabilities,

suicide, and death, then contemplate and experience it in meditation.

Content might not be suitable for everyone**.
