June 27, 2015, 9am-4:30pm with Robert Beatty.
This retreat, focused on the reality of life and death, was initially scheduled for February. It was preempted by the passing away of my teacher Ruth Denison. I had the privilege of being present with Ruth through her last breath and cremation. This experience, and the ongoing realizations concerning life-and-death make the importance of this subject even more clear to me.
If we want to live fully, to take the risk of intimacy and closeness with other persons, it is essential that we embrace the reality of death.
