Dying to Live Workshop
“In Japanese Zen, the term shoji translates as “birth-death.” There is no separation between life and death other than a small hyphen - a thin line that connects the two. We cannot be truly alive without maintaining an awareness of death.”
The Five Invitations
What would happen if we stopped compartmentalizing death? How then would we live? Living fully, courageously and consciously prepares us to accept our mortality. Scholar Huston Smith says, “it’s the second greatest life adventure after our birth.” It has always been there and the time for exploring the inevitable is “now.” Join us for this liberating journey to understand how our impermanence is the doorway to opportunity!
There are endless stimulating topics on the subject of living and dying across cultures, to current views about an afterlife. In this highly successful workshop, we will express our thoughts and feelings through a variety of art and learning forms, as well as through shared conversation. A structured e-Workbook and resources will also be provided.
