Talking Death: 1:1 Empowerment Guidance With Shylene

Begin to plan and organize your wishes, needs,

and beliefs around your death in this three part Empowerment Package


Opening November 2021


Limited Space Available – ONLY 5 spots

We all have a death story.

We all formulate beliefs, values, understandings and patterns based on what we’ve been shown and taught during our lifetime.

For some, these beliefs we’ve climatized to, and are accustomed to, for the duration of our lives.

What we believe death to be, for some of us can bring great fear, while for others it can bring great release and ease.

How do your beliefs around death impact you?

What is your death story?

How do you envision death?

How do you envision your death or a loved one’s death?

Does this raise a great fear within you, or do you feel calm and rather sure that it’s going to be okay?

These questions act as a starting place for an open discussion about death and your feelings around it.
What makes you feel at ease and brings you a sense of security and comfort?
What causes you the greatest fear?
These questions, and more, are discussed with Shylene as you begin to unravel this topic through open, empowering dialog.

You’re invited to
"1:1 Empowerment Guidance
With Shylene"

The RestSureTM Guidance Program provides approaches and tools that help get the conversations started and help bring clarity to your end of life plans. A communication tool called “Death of Cards” is designed to empower you to discover what you want and what your loved ones may need to support each other in your end of life.

Putting Death Back On The Kitchen Table

Looking at death by talking about your fears, beliefs and values creates a clearer understanding of what is most important to you.

During your one-on-one sessions with Shylene you begin these discussions so you may continue and share what is important to you with your loved ones.

Understanding brings clarity and clarity empowers you to RestSure in your everyday life as we all head towards our own end of life.

“ …I can now “RestSure”, knowing that the paperwork is done and my daughter knows my wishes.” E.Hart

Talking Death Won't Kill You!!!

Here we are getting ready to dive into a topic that no one really wants to dive into.  Death, dying and our dead.

What comes out for you when you hear those words?

Is it something that you would like to have more calmess around, more sureness around?

By looking at death and talking about our fears and our beliefs and our values we are able to create a clear understanding of where we sit and what is most important to us.

During 1:1 sessions, you will:

  • Honour what is most important to you now at this time in your life.
  • Face what brings you stress and see the ways to change this.
  • Share what is initially requesting to be dealt with, and then get started.
  • Begin planning your future conversations.
  • Open your journey to resting sure in connection to your death.

Who Can Benefit from the RestSure Empowerment Guidance Plan?

Family leaders and elders, community front runners, holistic business owners and people who are genuinely interested in understanding, discussing and planning their own end of life. 

The RestSureTM tools and program are designed to bring ease to you, your family and other loved ones around death, dying and the dead.

Talk Death With Shylene - the sessions:

Guidance sessions are available both in-person or online depending on your preference and/or physical location. Virtual sessions will be conducted over Zoom. The following outlines each session at a high level.

  1. Walk & Talk: A physical walk and talk. Walking gets your body moving and helps focus the mind and isolate you from distraction. During this session you will assess any immediate needs around end of life, discuss and clarify planning steps and introduce the Death of Cards communication tool.
  2. Empowerment Assessment: Work with Shylene to identify the top 3-5 priorities around your own end of life. The Death of Cards tool supports this discovery as you work through the various sections with Shylene.
  3. Tea for Two: Sit, relax and enjoy a cup of tea with Shylene as you discuss the next steps to move forward in your own RestSure Plan Development. Share your progress, ask for additional guidance or simply enjoy a casual conversation about your journey in your final session with Shylene.

 Follow-up Sessions: Shylene offers additional sessions to provide continued guidance in preparing your plan, strategizing for conversations with loved ones or other support in developing your plan so you can RestSure!

It's in the awareness of your own beliefs, in your own value systems that we will be able to reveal what it is that is freaking you out about death, dying and the dead! S3

Talk Death with Me (Shannon-Shylene Schlackl)

As the eldest of 32+ grandchildren, since a young age I was challenged to hone my gift of gab.  Working most of my life as a visual artist, communitarian,  and serial entrepreneur and now as the mother of two young adults, I see the power of voice. 

I do actually love talking about death, fear and sacred things… Weird I know, and really it drives my boat.  See more about my journey into this work at: HERE

I believe in the importance of communication and clarity around values, beliefs and wishes. I learn and lead by example and I am always having these conversions with my people. 

I dearly want to thank my mentor, friend and partner in RestSure, Susan Blackwood.  Deep bows to my elder Anne-Rosemary Conway for introducing me to the sacredness of Circle. To Eialina Armsfeild for showing me sacred death. Special mention to the alive teachings of StarHawk, Sarah Kerr, and Shauna Janz.  Their leadership in the field of grief, death advocacy, ritual, ceremony and ancestral wayfinding have changed my life.

My invitation to you is to rise above this fear and to know yourself. To know what matters to you, that blessed moment of knowing grace and ease and joy.  To find what you are afraid of and face it.  S3
