One of the kindest things we can do for ourselves and others is come to terms with our own mortality, and to use that knowledge to transform the way we live our life. Buddha’s teachings offer profound insight into the meaning and process of death and dying, helping us to face our own death, and that of others, with confidence, clarity and fearlessness. In this course, we will learn how to transform the understanding and experience of dying into a meaningful and powerful spiritual opportunity.

Each session will include a brief guided meditation to find greater peace and confidence as well as a talk. Chairs will be provided. Everyone is welcome!

Session 1: 10am – 11:15am
Session 2: 11:45am – 1pm
