Facing Death-Finding Life; Wisdom and Compassion Practices in death and dying


Presenters: Barbara Jones and Michael Dash

The Buddha said, death is the great teacher,

but what do we have to learn from events as diverse as accident, illness and old age when compared with judicial punishments and war?

What does experiencing the death of a loved one have to teach us in relation to communal expressions of grief for the death of people unknown?

What do we have to learn from contemplating our own death, the imminence of which is mostly hidden from view?

Whether you hope to “go quietly into that good night” or perhaps by contrast, “rage against the dying of the light” AABCAP invites you to join us for an evening of thoughtful reflection and discussion upon the meaning of the Buddha’s invitation to sit at the foot of this great teacher.

The Conversation;

The Wednesday evening Conversation, co-facilitated by psychotherapist and human change specialist, Barbara Jones and Michael Dash, bereavement counsellor and insight meditation teacher, will give clinicians the opportunity to explore the ways in which life meaning and solace can be found by facing death with wisdom and compassion.
