If we woke up each morning, knowing we only had a year to live what would change? How would we greet the day, our partner, our job? Until we are directly confronted with our own mortality most of us live life as if it will never end.
This is a course about living fully each moment of our lives. Over twelve months we will live as though this is our last year. We will reflect upon life and death from the Buddhist perspective while incorporating other spiritual traditions as well.
It is a course for people of all ages and those interested in living life to the fullest. Know that your registration for this class is viewed as a commitment to participate for the entire year and wholly engage in the process of discovery. There may be moments of intense sadness, extraordinary joy, and everything in between.
Our intention is to create a community that grows together and supports each other on the much anticipated year-long journey. The core required readings are Frank Ostaseki’s “The Five Invitations” and Stephen Levine’s “A Year to Live”.
The course will meet with three different time slots.
* Daylong are from 10:00am – 5:00pm
* Evenings are from 7:00pm – 9:00pm
