Wen received her masters’ in education from Antioch University. She previously trained in classical homeopathy. A renowned yoga teacher, Wen has over 20 years of yoga therapy and teaching expertise. She has created new methods to help people deal with severe disabilities, or cope with terminal illness. She conducts self-care programs for educators, caregivers and health care providers. Wen’s own near-death experience along with her personal encounter with serious injury and illness gave her direct experience of the “end of life dilemma.” Wen shares her knowledge to assist others face these universal human challenges. Wen has been serving the local hospice and the senior/special needs community in Friday Harbor since 2011.

He specializes in complex, hard-to-treat conditions as well as illnesses that have emotional or traumatic origins. His unique diagnostic ability and patented technique treat not just the physical body but also the soul of his patients. He shares extensive research on life after death, both of the east and west, as well as insights drawn from clinical experience.

Event highlights are:

• Soul navigation: Make sound decisions in life and have clarity of consciousness through the last passage in life.

• Legal considerations: law and policy, right and advocacy, dying with dignity, etc.

• Long-term vision: life after death, survival of the intangible self.

Going through the last passage in life with sound decisions and clarity of consciousness is something that we all wish for ourselves and our loved ones. Although this is a subject that is not commonly spoken about, it might well come across our mind since, after all, the ending of physical existence is only a natural process. Our expertise would be fostering skills that help people address their fears and concerns.

Whether you would like to gain more legal clarity on your rights or seek greater wisdom to embrace this transition from a non-materialistic perspective, this workshop will both calm and expand your mind.

This program offers insights from evidence-based research into the continuation of life after physical death and discusses the nature of the intangible self and offer examples of how people can embrace their soul journey at any stage of life or during terminal illness.

A valuable program for anyone who is interested in holistic ways of living, family or friends of people facing life-threatening illness, health care professionals, caregivers and anyone who wishes to embrace the end-of-life process with grace and openness to spirit.
