Contemplating Death: deepening our awareness of mortality, as a gateway to immediacy, love and freedom.
A day retreat, including meditation, reflection and contemplation, held primarily in silence.
In our modern western culture it is easy to be somewhat insulated from death, and denied the benefit and transformative power of contemplating the reality of our own impermanence.
Giving attention to mortality has a remarkable capacity to open the mind and touch our hearts: clarifying what is really important to us, opening our heart to the shared condition of all beings and inviting a deeper letting go, into the freedom of the deathless.
