Awakening to Life through Contemplating Death, March 3-4, 2018, Insight San Diego


What is subject to death, dies. I am not exempt.” is one of the Five Daily Remembrances the Buddha recommended for frequent reflection for lay and ordained practitioners, alike. We all die, that is for certain. Only the timing is unknown. Rather than ignoring, fearing, or running away from this natural truth of our human lives, we can harness the power of this “supreme contemplation”, as the Buddha called it, to inform our precious human life and live more fully, with presence, and according to our deepest values. Embracing the impermanent nature of our lives also allows a deep letting go, freedom, and fearlessness in preparation for the actual moment of our death. The weekend retreat will include dharma talks, guided meditations, writing, interactive exercises, Q/A, as well as time for silent practice.
