NPR471 Aging as a Spiritual Path


Contemplating the end of life can help us focus attention on those things that are most important to us. Recognizing our own impermanence can open us to knowledge of the impermanence of all phenomena. Considering the end of our self as we know it can help us explore what it is that constitutes selfhood. This workshop, through lectures, discussion and exercises will further our ability to take advantage of these opportunities presented to us, as well as give us a means of living in harmony with impermanence. Elissa Slanger, an octogenarian, clinical psychologist, artist and longtime Buddhist practitioner will address key teachings in Buddhism and draw from her own near-death experience. Santosh Philip, a longtime student of Buddhism and teacher of Kum Nye, will help participants experience, through Kum Nye exercises, what it is to be present in the moment.

Suitable for all levels of students.
