In “A Year to Live”, Steven Levine writes: “So I committed myself to living a year as though it were my last.  To practice dying. To be fully alive. To investigate the dread of, and resistance to, life and death. To complete my birth before it is over. To investigate the part of myself that refuses to take birth fully, and hops about as though it still had one foot in the womb. To enter the healing I have seen so many times as miraculous growth during a final illness.  To place both feet on the ground at last.  To live with mercy and awareness in the midst of the consequences of love, or the lack thereof. To explore this ground, the ground of being, out of which this impermanent body and ever-changing mind originate.  To cut though a lifetime of confusion and forgetfulness.  To undertake a life review with gratitude and forgiveness. To explore that which holds to its suffering, and cultivate a heart that cannot be distracted even by death.”

Format: Beginning October 2021, monthly meetings with 8 – 10 like minded people. Meditation, readings, contemplations and journal writing. Monthly optional presentations at the Shambhala Center (or on-line) followed by conversations with people in other groups.
