This six-month course will be deepening the inquiry into death, loss, and the beauty of life this contemplation can bring. The method of inquiry – inquiring into our immediate experience as it unfolds – is a fundamental practice in the Diamond Approach. Meditation and inquiry practices will be introduced as a support for the development of Presence as we encounter the mystery of the unknown. Together we will meditate, present teachings, and engage inquiry through a series of questions. We will invite an intimacy with our experience through the lens of death, loss, and the preciousness of life. This offering is open to the public and takes place on Zoom.
