A presentation shedding new light on the psychological, emotional, and spiritual aspects of aging and dying.

 

Kathleen Dowling Singh, Ph.D., has extensive experience and training in transpersonal psychology and various spiritual traditions. Having worked extensively with the dying in hospice care, she speaks about the spiritual transformations at the end of life and the causes and conditions that encourage awakening as we age. Kathleen is the author of The Grace in Dying: How We Are Transformed Spiritually As We Die, and The Grace in Aging: Awaken As You Grow Older.  Her work has been compared to the foundational studies of Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, and her message is one of hope, comfort and spiritual transformation.
