CONTEMPLATIONS ON DEATH

BY BRENT LAND

9AM TO 12PM

$25

FOLLOWED BY WALKING MEDITATION

&

A GATHERING TO EAT TOGETHER

FOR THOSE THAT WISH

With the practice of death contemplation, we see aniccā, impermanence, in big and small ways. We see the goodbyes and the losses— loss of friendship, loss of contact. There are all kinds of deaths. We see the ultimate impermanence, the arising and passing away of life in all its forms. Contemplating aniccā, we see anatta, not-self, by noticing how impersonal death is—how ungovernable this body is.

We cannot stop it from aging, dying, or decomposing. It’s impersonal. This body is nature. We are nature.

RESOURCES:

HOW WE LIVE IS HOW WE DIE.

In How We Live Is How We Die, Pema Chödrön shares her wisdom for working with this flow of life—learning to live with ease, joy, and compassion through uncertainty, embracing new beginnings, and ultimately preparing for death with curiosity and openness rather than fear.

A YEAR TO LIVE

This year-long program will focus on waking up and living life more fully through the exploration of death as spiritual practice.

Our program will be available on ZOOM.
Please specify you will be joining by ZOOM when you register.

🕊  “The purpose of life is to be happy.

– Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama

 “I won’t tell you that the world matters nothing, or the world’s voice, or the voice of society. They matter a good deal. They matter far too much. But there are moments when one has to choose between living one’s own life, fully, entirely, completely—or dragging out some false, shallow, degrading existence that the world in its hypocrisy demands. You have that moment now.”
