About the Event
As we have learned with the exploration of “memento mori”, there are many traditions and practices from around the world that include the constant reminder and practice of death. The Buddhist tradition believes that death awareness meditation, or Maranasati, is an essential practice. What can we discover when we ‘practice’ death? What does this even mean? This week, we will dive into the practice with a 20-minute meditation (led by me) and discussion to follow. Please note that this is a practice that stems from a philosophy, not a religion. This is a safe place, and all efforts will be made to ensure that people feel grounded and ready to try something new. (And no, you don't have to sit like the person in the picture).
Please also note: this is a meditation that, while foundational for some Buddhist lineages, it can also be intense. If you tend towards dissociation, are currently working through trauma, or feeling psychologically unsteady or ungrounded, it is probably a good idea to sit this one out and stick with learning about the practice from a theoretical standpoint for now. This is not meant to scare anyone away, just to err on the side of caution. If you are uncertain or have questions, please email me!
