at Nickerson St. Zendo, (101 Nickerson Street, Suite 130, Seattle, WA, 98109)
Eight sessions: Tuesdays, Oct. 10 - Nov. 28.
Birth-and-death is the Great Matter. We commonly embrace birth and fear death, but they are not separate. Birth is always present in life; death is always present in life. The human life-span shapes every aspect of our individual and collective histories, but what is it? What begins? What ends? How is it to be intimate with this mystery? Please join us in this challenging exploration.
The class will include short talks and in-class exercises. There will be ample time for large and small group discussion. Mindfulness practice throughout the week will be a primary focus. There will be assigned readings but no one text.
Together we will look into the Great Matter.
