Life and death are a package deal. You can’t really pull them apart.
In fact, in Japanese Zen, the term shoji translates as “life-death.” There is no separation between life and death other than a small hyphen, a thin line that connects the two. We can’t be truly alive without maintaining an awareness of death.
Death revels both the precarious and precious nature of our life. It illuminates what matters most and reminds us not to squander this life. The good news is we don’t have to wait until the end of our life to realize the wisdom that death has to teach.
In this highly experiential program we will learn how ordinary people, facing what they imagine is impossible or unbearable find the resources to meet death in extraordinary ways. We will explore how the study of death can help us identify and use these resources to navigate inner transformation.
The program will include silent meditation, experiential exercises, inquiry practices, pragmatic tools and Frank’s inspiring stories of sitting bedside with over 1000 dying people during the past 30 years.
This program is an invitation to reclaim the spiritual dimensions of dying, courageously meet our great fears and live a more whole-hearted life.
Event is suitable for beginners.
