Facing Aging and Death with Grace: A Buddhist Perspective on Dying

March 26, 2017 at 10:00 am

One of the few certainties in life is death. Despite this undeniable truth, few of us give it a moment’s thought until it is too late. Think about what it would be like to discover how coming to terms with our mortality enriches our life and enables us to face the inevitable with dignity, confidence, and joy. Buddha gave clear teachings on the process of dying and rebirth which we can use to help those we love (and ourself) pass to a higher level in our next life.
What does our death mean? Our death is the final, permanent separation between our body and our mind. But from a Buddhist perspective, death is just as much a beginning as it is an ending. During this half-day workshop, we will learn about the death and dying process from the Buddhist point of view, learn how to prepare for our own death, and learn how to help others as they go through the dying process. Everyone is welcome to attend you don’t need to be a Buddhist.
