an interactive evening with Frank Ostaseski Buddhist teacher, co-founder Zen Hospice Project, San Francisco

Life and death are a package deal. They cannot be pulled apart and we cannot truly live unless we are aware of death. Death is always with us, in the marrow of every passing moment. And the good news is we don’t have to wait until the end of our lives to realize the wisdom that death has to offer.

In this interactive evening, we will explore how an awareness of death can helps us to appreciate the fact that we are alive, to encourage self-exploration, to clarify our values, to find meaning, and to generate positive action. As we come in contact with life’s precarious nature, we also come to appreciate its preciousness. Then we don’t want to waste a minute. We want to enter our lives fully. 

Mr. Ostaseski has accompanied more than 1000 people over the past three decades. Drawing on that experience he will help us discover how death can be a good companion on the road to living well and dying without regret.
