Making Friends With Death

Making Friends With Death

Death and loss pervade the fabric of life, yet we spend a great deal of energy pushing this reality away. What would happen if, instead of avoiding death, we made it our friend?

In this talk, on June 2, 2019, Jonathan Prescott will offer three practices we can use to transform our relationship with loss and death, moving us beyond fear and avoidance and towards the Bodhisattva path of generosity and compassion.

Jon is a Board Certified Clinical Chaplain and Pastoral Counselor and an ordained student of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh.
