About this Event

This study group, based on Frank Ostaseski’s The Five Invitations will be a facilitated exploration of what death can teach us about living fully.

Each month we will discuss one of the Invitations, with the expectation that participants will have read that chapter before joining us. Please read the forward, intro and chapters 1,2,3, and 4 which cover the 1st Invitation, Don't Wait. The sixth month will be a summing up, and we are hoping that one of the Metta Institute (Frank's formal year long training program) graduates will join us to close out this time together.

If you are interested in reflecting on the philosophical and spiritual underpinnings of death and dying, this experience is for you!

January's Invitation: Don’t Wait

Facilitators:

Rhyena Halpern is a Community Ambassador for Mission Hospice, an end-of-life doula, hospice volunteer, and a wellness coach. Rhyena enjoyed a career as an arts manager and documentary filmmaker, after stints as an adjunct professor, massage therapist, and working artist.

Katherine Bradshaw Chappelear is a retired municipal park and recreation professional who became a Mission Hospice Community Ambassador after the death of her husband of forty years. She believes that accepting and learning how to manage grief in a healthy way cannot be overrated.
