Becoming Fully Alive by Befriending Death
At the heart of the Christian tradition is the paradoxical truth that life is to be found in the midst of death. However this course is really about living. Living in the presence of death, preparing for death in such a way that we might live fully, generously, courageously, joyfully, peacefully – Now! In this course we explore this confronting topic in gentle and ordinary ways. We explore theology and very practical tasks to be done. We focus on love and trust and forgiveness (both accepting forgiveness and practicing it toward others and ourselves). And we meditate in such a way that peace and trust and joy might grow in us and out from us.
