Through our compassionate presence we can be of great benefit to others who are facing their end of life. Compassionate presence assists the dying to move into optimal states of mind  supporting a peaceful and loving transition.  End of life is said to be one of the greatest opportunities for personal growth transforming fear and confusion into letting go into our open heart and open mind.  Entering into this interval of possibilities can reveal our innate potential and benefits not only the dying but transforms those around them.

These classes will include samatha meditation and inquiry to assist us in developing presence for ourselves as we work with our own fears and vulnerabilities and open to compassionate presence.
