The Art of Dying Institute presents:
In this interactive webinar, Frank will introduce The Five Invitations, principles that show us how to wake up fully to our lives. They can be understood as best practices for anyone navigating a life transition or coping with loss, serious illness, or a personal crisis. They guide us toward appreciating life’s preciousness.
Weaving together pragmatic tools, real life stories, and ancient wisdom, Frank helps us discover how an awareness of death can be a valuable companion on the road to living well, forging a rich and meaningful life, free of regret. Frank will share the distilled, hard-won lessons synthesized from 30 years of being with dying.
This highly interactive program will utilize inquiry and group discussions. The approach is mindfulness based, compassion-focused, and relationship-centered.
Registration will remain open until the time of the actual event.
