Grateful Death is an open monthly practice group devoted to the question of how to prepare for death and/or take care of those who are dying. It is a blessing (thus, we are grateful) to have the time and opportunity to meditate on the inevitability of death. Many Buddhist teachers regard death awareness practice as great motivation to delve deeply into the questions of attachment, impermanence and uncovering true nature. And contrary to western cultural beliefs, facing  fears of death and dying can help us live life more fully. With this understanding each self contained monthly meeting will address some facet of preparing for one’s own or another’s death and will include meditation, readings, exercises and/or one to one inquiry. From from 7:00 – 8:30 pm on the third Wednesday of each month.
