End of Life Community Meeting
November 11 / 7:00 PM - November 11 / 8:30 PM
“The moment of death is a tremendous opportunity, if we understand clearly what is happening and have prepared well for it in life. For at the actual moment of death, the thinking ego-mind dies into the essence, and in this truth, enlightenment takes place.” --Sogyal Rinpoche
Many of us have chosen to become members of the Austin Shambhala Meditation Center to support our meditation practice with the help of the community of fellow practitioners on this path. Our rich, nurturing andgenerous sangha has helped us to open our hearts further to the teachings and, over time, these individuals have become our closest friends, most insightful teachers and loving family. Through joyful events like birth, unions and celebrations as well as through the more difficult transitions like sickness, loss and death our sangha is truly a precious jewel for each of us on our path.
In this meeting we will continue the discussion begun last November around working with death, dying and grieving at the center. If you missed the first meeting, please feel free to join us for this one. This meeting will focus more on the creation of specific groups and teams to handle both the practical aspects and the practice aspects surrounding the loss of community members.
Please note that this discussion is for members of the Austin Shambhala Meditation Center only. If you would like information on becoming a member please contact Melinda Rothouse at email@example.com.
