It is truly surprising what a death contemplation process can unlock.
We come on earth to practice impermanence and detachment - it’s the soul’s biggest lesson in letting go. Still, we don’t want to think that something will finish, and we try to hold on as much as we can, to the people in our lives, to our jobs, to the familiar… we even deny our mortality, acting like we will be here forever. But the more disconnected we are from the concept of death and the energy of change, the more disconnected we are from life. When we befriend death, we live life fully. The Q’ero Peruvian Shamans open the door to metaphorical death and practice dying yearly, contemplating what this experience brings, what they are still attached to and what requires healing, adjusting.
