The Dying to Live Cabaret with Cynthia and Stephen Winton-Henry

Where Sister Death brings life into exquisite focus

The next “Dying to Live” Cabaret is in the planning stages

A solemn yet celebratory Zoom gathering featuring creative expressions that honor

  • Death’s role at the sacred center of life
  • That death is not a solo dance.
  • Dying requires a herd of angels
  • The obligation to die wise.
In the first hour, we center in our body wisdom around living and dying, any current grief, and offer gratitude for life. In the second hour, participants may tell a story, sing, dance, and offer readings or images about death and dying. We conclude with a dance on behalf of Life.

Payment contribution  0-25 here.

Link here to attend and we’ll send the Zoom with details. The Cabaret is open to all. We welcome contributions of $25 for those who are able. 

If you you ready to lean into Death as a holy companion and reflect on life’s greatest improvisation: death and dying, come to the Cabaret. Here,  Cynthia brings the essentials of art, love, experience, and solemn joy to help people get in their bodies. Stephen, a retired hospice chaplain, listens, reflects, and helps people get out! Together, they have it covered!

In the first hour, we will greet one another and center in four body wisdoms of living and dying, honor any present grief, lift up gratitude for life, and bow to our current relationship with death and dying.  

  • Death’s role at the sacred center of life
  • That dying is not a solo dance
  • Dying requires a herd of angels
  • We have an obligation to die wise.

In the second hour, participants may sign up to tell a story, sing, dance, or offer a reading or images about death and dying. We conclude with a dance on behalf of Life.

The Cabaret is open to all.
