The Philadelphia Shambhala Center has created a practical and comprehensive resource, addressing the experience of dying and death, and the preparations Buddhists might make to ease stress and to enhance the experience, both for the one who is dying and for those who have the honor and responsibility of caring for them. 

The workshop will provide a survey of the guide, with emphasis on the Spiritual Directive, clarifying your values and making your wishes known. Workshop activities and discussions are relevant to Buddhists, as well as their family members, friends, health-care workers, chaplains and caregivers. People of all religious traditions, as well as those who do not follow a particular spiritual path, are welcome.

Death & Dying: A Guide is available free online at: 

philadelphia.shambhala.org/community/societal-health-well/ 

(Scroll down and click on: Death & Dying: A Guide.)

A limited number of copies will be available at the event for a nominal fee.   

The Philadelphia Shambhala Center generosity policy applies to this program. Participants who pay the full price can help to make this program available to others.
