Morning program: Reflections: We are all aware intellectually, that we will die someday. But have we looked more carefully at our thoughts, feelings and understandings of death? The morning program will consist of Buddhist teachings, reflections and exercises that help us touch into the idea of our own death.
Afternoon program: Practicalities; Death has a practical side too. Regarding our own death or the death of a loved one, the process can proceed more easefully when we are informed about our choices. The afternoon program will introduce us to forms such as the Physicians Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (POLST), the Five Wishes for end-of-life decisions, and other helpful organizational tools to assist in fully walking this path.
