About the Event
In the words of the Buddha, “of all the footprints, that of the elephant is supreme. Similarly, of all mindfulness meditation, that on death is supreme.” Maranasati is the Pali term for Mindfulness/Awareness of Death and is one of the oldest practices of Buddhism. On the surface this practice can seem quite morbid or depressing, but in practice, contemplation of death is extremely powerful and can open up new demensions of gratitude and appreciation for the gift of life. In fact, it can be surprising how much peace and stability arises through Maranasati practice.
In this series, we will explore these teachings and practices through meditation, readings, and discussion. We will meet once a week for 4 weeks and support material will be emailed in between meetings, including recorded meditation practices, articles, and other relevant material to support you on this journey. All meetings will be recorded and made available the following day.
The price for all four weeks is on a sliding scale but no will be turned away due to financial constraints.
I cannot wait to get started!
