Description:
Death is not exactly a typical dinner table topic in modern, dominant Western culture. We all “know” that we die, yet we tend to ignore it, put our collective heads in the sand, or fearfully run away from any discussion. Instead of being in conflict with reality, we can harness the power of this reflection to stay aligned with our deepest values, to live and love more fully, and be happier and more present for this miraculous show called our life. Embracing our life’s impermanence also gives rise to a deep letting go, freedom, and fearlessness.

Contemplating these benefits, we can appreciate why the Buddha recommended that all of us reflect on our death every day as one of the Five Daily Remembrances. Join us for a day of practice and exploration through Dharma talks, guided meditation, and small group dialogue to turn towards and befriend this powerful contemplation.
