In-person: Maranasati – How reflecting on your death can liberate your life with Martin Aylward
23 March 2024 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Maranasati is the recollection that we’re all going to die, and we don’t know when. The Buddhist tradition offers rich, powerful and radically transformative practices for contemplating the fragility and preciousness of our lives, and this day of practice will explore these practices, looking at ways of exploring our relationship to our own death, that of our loved ones, and the wider relationship to the dying of species and the death-threat to humanity of our climate breakdown.
Does that sound downbeat? We’ll also be pointing to the wonder of life, to the miracle that we are here at all, and to the dynamism, joy, creativity and gratitude that comes forth in acknowledging our mortality, and make the most of this brief, extraordinary gift of life.
