Death Insight & Conversation Cards
This 49 card deck is designed to help break the taboo surrounding death & dying.
Being aware of options around death and dying, is a way of empowering ourselves through the process as it happens with our loved ones. It assists us in coming to terms with the inevitable separation that death will bring and the longing for things to remain as they were. We will also be able to take a different view to our own mortality.
A Lesson from the Cards
The cover art on the Guidebook depicts 2 women. The one on the right appears to have picked up a piece of paper and does not seem very happy about it. Maybe she is being confronted with looking at something she would rather avoid.
(this maybe some of you as you pick a card)
The woman in front of her to the left, appears to have a poster board scene depicting spiritual aspirants bathing in the Ganges tucked under her arm, but is looking towards a deity or chosen form of the Divine. Maybe she has come to terms with the life and death cycle. She perhaps has chosen to live well and continue her spiritual journey in the Eternal Now, the most powerful place any of us can be conscious of at any given time.
When to Use the Cards
At the wake or funeral of the departed one, and in the subsequent years of adjustment

Place a card under your pillow and see what symbols appear in the dream state

A safe place to talk and learn...
Death can take on many forms. Death of an idea, a prejudice, a physical form etc...
There are millions of people out there who are avoiding the 5th obstacle to enlightenment; clinging to the physical form thinking it is permanent.
The only thing we can be sure of is change.
If we want to mature, we have to be more comfortable with the subject of death and dying. We have coated it like a pill and the truth is it will not go away. We should try to talk about it and all facets of it with love, respect and humor for none of us can dodge the inevitable.
