The Five Invitations Discovering What Death Can Teach Us About Living Fully a book by Frank Ostaseski | Sorry, this program has filled! Wednesdays 10-11:30 a.m. October 10-November 14, 2018 A six-week study group facilitated by Carol Bartlett and Lalor Cadley
Based on years of experience in hospice work, Buddhist teacher Frank Ostaseski offers five ways of living with an awareness of death that leads to fullness of life. From the book jacket: “Death is not waiting for us at the end of a long road. Death is always with us, in the marrow of every passing moment. She is the secret teacher hiding in plain sight, helping us to discover what matters most. Life and death are a package deal.”
Ostaseski’s Five Invitations are: Don’t wait. Welcome everything. Push away nothing. Bring your whole self to the experience. Find a place of rest in the middle of things. Cultivate don’t-know mind.
