About the Course

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

an online virtual course which is PART 1 of the foundation of the contemplative creative psychotherapy (CCPT) training series.

During this course, we will discuss what is usually not discussed, and use meditation and contemplative creative practices to explore impermanence, life transitions and changes we encounter from pre-birth to elderly stages of life, pre-death and death.

If you are interested in learning and understanding your experience as a human being, this course is for you!

However, be aware that we will investigate mental health, sickness, disabilities, and death, then contemplate and experience them in meditation.

The content might not be suitable for everyone**.


What you will learn

  • Learn the many transitions and changes human beings experience through their life span and the psycho-physiological adaptations required to develop resilience and thrive through the ages.

Day 2 - Impermanence, Aging & Death
