Integral Yoga International just announced the launch of this new project and website. The website offers resources and the project also consists of a series of monthly workshops led by senior Integral Yoga teachers with expertise in various areas relating to preparation for death and dying.

At every age but especially in our later years, each of us must address death in all of its manifestations—releasing attachments to this life, disposing of our bodies and belongings, and helping our loved ones cope with their losses. The Integral Yoga End-of-Life Project honors this journey by providing an array of spiritual guidance and practical advice on a topic we may have avoided but that is inevitable.

Discover and implement the ideas of six unique, new workshops from Integral Yoga to save your family and friends from these daunting obligations and to prepare and liberate yourself to enjoy the rest of your life.

These workshops are based on the teachings of Sri Swami Satchidananda and taught by his senior students. The companion website,, is an offering built by one of the first Integral Yogis, Karuna Kreps. It provides clear and inspiring advice and resources to help you make this experience easeful and, maybe even, joyful. Rather than seeing death as frightening and sad, we can embrace liberation from the human form to return to our eternal cosmic consciousness.
