Buddhist teachings offer valuable and life-changing guidelines for those of us who aspire to age wisely, love well, and die peacefully. In this course, we’ll explore perspectives and practices that empower us to embrace the vicissitudes of growing older with compassion, curiosity, humor, and gratitude. Our time together will include dharma talks, meditation practice, experiential exercises, and small group discussions. This is an invitation to move beyond the life-denying attitude toward aging that is common in our culture and to celebrate the richness and depth of authentic spiritual maturity.
Noble silence will be observed following the evening session through breakfast the following morning, with some extended periods of silence during the day.
This course is suitable for both beginning and experienced practitioners.
Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion:
Three spaces will be held for self-identified BIPOC participants until eight weeks before this course begins when they will be released generally. Therefore, we encourage you to join the waitlist even if the course appears full as additional spaces may become available. Please see our diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) policies for more information.
As we work to become a more inclusive, equitable, and diverse community, we invite feedback/suggestions you may have regarding ways that we can make participation in the program more accessible and welcoming; please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
