Flint Sparks Facing Our Dying Workshop

This day will be an exploration of the immense gratitude and awesome responsibility of being given the gift of an ordinary human life. We will do so by turning toward impermanence as a personal lived reality, not a Buddhist or philosophical concept.

Together we will engage in silent meditation, writing and personal reflection, relational practices, and deep spiritual inquiry. This is a shared path. Please join us.

We appear on earth for a brief time and ultimately annual public talk pass away as vibrant expressions of the great mystery. While we are here we are the eyes and ears of the Universe, receiving and expressing the inconceivable nature of what it means to be human.
