Great Compassion, Great Courage: Exploring Life, Death, Freedom with Roshi Joan HalifaxNovember 16-19, 2017 | Upaya Zen Center
This whole life is a place where we can make real and right our dedication to awakening, in living and dying, in caring and being cared for. Being completely and vividly present for the rich details of our lives and the lives of others is the means that we use to transform our anguish, discover truth, and serve. Living and dying then is an experience of discovery, and this program, led by two pioneers in the end-of-life care field, is an exploration of how we bring depth and dedication into our whole lives and the life of the world. Through teachings, exchanges, and unique practices and processes, we explore the following areas: engaged practice and ethics, community dynamics and the shadow, developing compassion and wisdom as we care for ourselves and others, and practices and processes that cultivate our skills in being fully human. This program is open to all, and special opportunity to work closely with Frank and Roshi.
Frank and Roshi are especially encouraging graduates from their trainings to join this retreat.
