Discovering what death can teach about living fully with Frank Ostaseski
19 May 2017 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
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.
We can harness the awareness of death 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. Death is a good companion on the road to living well and dying without regret.
Frank will explore these ideas and read from his new book The Five Invitations: Discovering What Death Can Teach Us About Living Fully. The book will be available to purchase at this event payable by cash or card and Frank will be signing them.
