The Buddha's teaching called The Five Reflections illuminates how old age, illness, the inevitability of death, and the lawfulness of cause and effect can be powerful, liberating teachers in our lives. Paradoxically, turning towards the inevitability of change and loss can help us face and transform our fears.
With the strength of community support, we may grow our capacity to see into these universal aspects of being human with more wisdom and compassion. This can give us new resources to skillfully care for ourselves and others and help us to live richer and more fulfilling lives in the here and now.
This workshop is appropriate for beginners, as well as experienced meditators, and will combine periods of meditation, reflection, and discussion. Though open to everyone, it is not recommended for those experiencing grief from a recent loss or illness. This program will not be recorded. Full and partial scholarships are available up to 72 hours before the start of the program.
