“Presence for Death and Dying: Awake and Aware to the End of Life”
Jul 30, 2017
10:30 am - 11:30 am
First Parish in Lexington
Drawing from the work of Stephen and Ondrea Levine, the Tibetans, and Ram Dass, we’ll look at ways to face death and dying with grace and gratitude. And we will consider: How differently would we live our lives if we weren’t afraid to die?
