The end result of birth is death. We all know this, but how often do we deny that our time will come? What would it look like if we were to embrace this precious life while acknowledging the impermanence of it all?
On his deathbed, Socrates exhorted his followers to practice dying as the highest form of wisdom. Preparing for our death can be one of the most rational and rewarding acts of a lifetime. It is an exercise that gives us the opportunity to deal with unfinished business and enter into a new and vibrant relationship with life. This will be a year of forgiveness, gratitude, letting go and letting be with love and kindness.
Our Year to Live group will meet monthly and participants will be guided in practical strategies, powerful guided meditations, group discussions, optional field trips, one-on-one meetings with Amy and Valerie and heart-opening practices to help with this work, so that whenever the ultimate moment does arrive for each of us, we will not feel that it has come too soon.
The book A Year to Live by Stephen Levine will be our guide. No prior meditation experience necessary. We welcome anyone who has the desire to begin this important journey with us.
