In this profoundly intimate course, internationally acclaimed practitioner Irene Smith shares openly about the multidimensional challenges and personal healing nature of this work. The manual, 2 audio presentations and 2 videos in this course clearly present Irene's practical and philosophical framework developed from over 25 years' experience.

I found the course very useful. I am of an age where many people around me are in the dying process. It was interesting to see the process through Irene's eyes as it has been my privilege to be with family members through their process. What an honor and peaceful way to see the wonders of the process. This course, in my opinion would be something for those who have terminal, or aged people to care for. Taking it, I feel may help them to understand and experience the loss of a loved one in death differently. Thank you for the opportunity to comment.
