The Practical Aspects of Dying

March 21, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

practical_dying_smLiving Joyfully, Dying Peacefully Workshop series

This workshop will guide participants in clarifying their wishes for end-of-life care, and help them navigate the medical environment of the end-of-life stages.

In these three workshops we will be focusing on Death and Dying from a Buddhist perspective and within a Buddhist context. Each workshop will explore a different aspect of death and dying, ranging from the philosophical to the very practical. The format of the days will involve a mixture of talks, meditation, reflection and personal sharing. Participants may register for one, two, or all three of the workshops in this series.

These workshops will be led by Karunasara, who practices and teaches within the Triratna Buddhist Community, and has been an ordained member of the Triratna Buddhist Order since 2003. A registered nurse for 50 years, Karunasara worked for much of her career with people who were dealing with life-threatening and terminal illnesses, including supporting patients and families through the end-of-life stages. She currently volunteers at Seacoast Hospice.


Led by:  Karunasara
Times:  9am – 1pm
Venue:  Aryaloka Main Building
Experience Level:  Open to All


* At Aryaloka, we strive to make our programs available to everyone regardless of their financial circumstances. Our fee structure allows you to pay according to your means. The Sustaining price is for people comfortably paying their rent or mortgage, and who can afford the occasional meal out and movie. The Sustaining price level also helps Aryaloka offer lower prices to those who could otherwise not afford to attend. Any payment above this price is a tax-deductible donation. Mid-Level prices are for those who have a regular income and are paying their mortgage or rent. Prices at this level contribute to the range of Aryaloka’s operating costs. The Base-Level price is for those without an income or with an income low enough that making ends meet is a challenge. Those whose circumstances are not included above can call the office to arrange alternate pricing.

* Retreat participants are asked to work together to prepare and clean up after meals and to help with general cleanup at the end of the retreat.
