Talking About Living & Dying

The Zen Death Group meets online twice monthly on the second and fourth Mondays from 12- to 1 or 1:15. We discuss, from a Buddhist perspective, issues surrounding death – our own and other’s – and how these experiences effect the way we live our lives. Members take turns facilitating the sessions and topics are predetermined. Often there are readings or other material that participants are invited to look at and ponder in advance if possible. New folks are very welcome. The meetings can be accessed through the standard PSZC Zoom link; 511-706-4990. Please contact for the password or if you have any questions.

For the month of August (and perhaps beyond) we will discuss issues posed by the Values Worksheet from the End of Life Washington “Tools for Planning” page. Here’s the link: The second resource listed is the Values Worksheet.
These questions can help clarify health care directives, as well as being great “food for thought”. Starting from the top, we’ll take on six or so of the values at each session. We meet online on the 2nd & 4th Mondays, noon – 1:15. Use the regular PSZC Zoom link and passcode. For questions, contact
