Exercises To Do Together
by Al Link and Pala Copeland


Time for Exercise: 15 to 30 minutes

Properties Required: bed sheet or other large piece of cloth


  1. One of you lies down as if you were a corpse.
  2. Your lover sets the scene with candles and covers you with the black cloth completely from head to toe.
  3. Your lover proceeds to say (or read, if it has been prepared in advance) your eulogy.


Eulogies for the dead are often poignantly beautiful. Wouldn’t you find it interesting to know what your lover would say about you before you die? This exercise can be extraordinarily powerful, if you can allow yourselves to feel the emotion. When your heart is open, this exercise can change how you live forever after.
