Celebrating Life by Embracing Death and Dying

  • East West Bookshop 324 Castro Street Mountain View, CA, 94041 United States (map)

It all comes down to this: life’s final exam. Most people wind up cramming for it, and some are suddenly snatched away, unprepared altogether. Death and dying can be hard to address, but this need not be so. Let’s explore life’s final exam from personal and spiritual points of view. Discussion will include dealing with fear, loss, grief and despair, along with stories of comfort and inspiration. Surendra James Conti is an author, teacher, and avid observer of the human scene. He was co-manager of East West from 2002-2011 and is currently the manager of Ananda Portland’s Temple and Teaching Center. Learn more. See workshop June 30
