THE FIVE INVITATIONS: Inviting the Wisdom of Death into Life

Frank Ostaseski
presented by Dorothy Ley Hospice

October 15, 2018 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm
Le Tréport Banquet Hall, 1075 Queensway E., Mississauga, ON L4Y 4C1
Tickets are free!

Event Description

“Life and death are a package deal. They cannot be pulled apart and we cannot truly live unless we are aware of death. Death is not waiting for us at the end of a long road. Death is always with us, in the marrow of every passing moment. She is the secret teacher hiding in plain sight. She helps us to discover what matters most. And the good news is we don’t have to wait until the end of our lives to realize the wisdom that death has to offer."

In this fascinating talk Frank will share the distilled, hard-won lessons synthesized from 30 years of being with dying. He will introduce his The Five Invitations, principals that show us how to wake up fully to our lives. They can be understood as best practices for anyone navigating a life transition, coping with loss or serious illness or a personal crisis; they guide us toward appreciating life’s preciousness.

Weaving together pragmatic tools, real life stories and ancient wisdom, Frank helps us discover how an awareness of death can be a valuable companion on the road to living well, forging a rich and meaningful life free of regret.
