A Year to Live

In this year-long program, based on the book A Year to Live by Stephen Levine, we will focus on waking up and living life more fully through the exploration of death as spiritual practice. The Buddha recommended that we contemplate the inevitability of our death in order to help us awaken to the fragile, fleeting, and precious nature of our lives. All are welcome as we join in community for this year-long practice in forgiveness, gratitude, and letting go.
