Date & Time
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Mirabai will read from her new book, Walking Each Other Home: Conversations on Loving and Dying, which she co-authored with Ram Dass, and talk about her experience of writing it. “The secret of dying is the secret of living, which is to be in the present moment.” The book treats fear of dying, how fear begins, letting go of fear, leading a loving life, being with the dying, grieving and loss, responses to pain, balancing medication and consciousness, and preparing for our own deaths. After the readings, there will be short meditative practices as well as discussions and reflections based on the interests and experiences of participants.
