The Universal Experience

An intimate encounter with your own death

“If somebody could only take part in a single workshop with me, I would say to them, make it this one” Alan

How we regard death has everything to do with how we live life. We can be devastated by the loss of friends, lovers and partners, as much through parting as through death. The loss of possessions, career and security can overwhelm our sense of well-being. Even in the good times we often live with a quiet undercurrent of concern about the future. At root is our fear of life’s greatest let-go, our own death. Every goodbye that hurts, every let-go that we can’t accept, shows us this fear.

“I feel like an enormous weight was dropped from my shoulders. I feel free. I feel more alive and joyous than ever in my almost 80 years of life.”
Helen Ziffer, USA

The Universal Experience is a life-changing 3-day encounter with your own death. It is a journey through which you discover an extraordinary personal freedom as you learn how to say goodbye and how to surrender to the mystery of death. On the way you come to recognize the real meaning of your relationships with the people close to you, and of your connection with everything in life. In a way that can seem quite magical, you find yourself letting go of old fears, hurts and struggles, and re-emerging into the here-and-now flow of your life with more lightness, playfulness, wisdom, compassion and aliveness than you perhaps could have imagined! No theory, no dogma; just you opening into profound acceptance of this universal experience that awaits us all.

“Two month ago my father died. It was a gift for me to hold him in my arms in the moment of death. I saw the light in his eyes before he disappeared. Sitting with him during his last hours, I often remembered The Universal Experience. It gave me the power to stay, to be there anyway. I could for the first time in my life accept my father totally. What a beautiful feeling! To say YES. To everything.”
Eva-Maria Vogel, Switzerland

There is no way to say how important this workshop is. You receive its gifts in your own being, and from you they flow into existence. The Universal Experience will almost certainly transform your relationship with death. Its greatest blessing, however, is the effect it is likely to have on the way you live your daily life.

“This workshop was one of the most powerful experiences in my life. To live through such conscious feelings was totally liberating. I feel I made a huge step forward. I cannot recommend it too highly.”
Michal, Czech Republic

“I feel as though ‘the old me’ has dissolved and a new being has been created who feels freedom and acceptance for everything there is, and who knows and understands that nothing is impossible.”
Esther Lipps, Switzerland
