How to live this year as if it were your last
- ** A new 'Year To Live' group is starting this month in San Francisco**
What would you want to be different in your life if you only had one
year to live?
- let go of a situation that has been draining you for a long time?
- try something new that has been calling you?
- experience more gratitude for what you have; less striving for what
- get a deeper understanding of who you are, and what you have to
offer this world?
- truly love and be loved?
- let go of the fear of death and dying, and prepare for a mindful and
joyous death - and what may come after?
Even if we live for another 50 years, practicing preparing for death
now in A Year To Live group lets us investigate what it means to live
and die fully. It is a process of curiosity and healing that lets us
savor our lives and let go of the fears we may have around aging and
Be part of a small group of 6-8 meeting monthly for a year, exploring
the profound territory in Stephen Levine's book 'A Year To Live'.
Stephen says that few of those who have died actually had a "last
year. Most only had a last month or two, a few weeks or days, or a few
seconds. To have a whole year to examine one's life consciously in the
context of approaching death is almost unique in the human experience".
Groups meet in San Francisco for three hours every month for a year,
and we then have a daylong commemoration of the end of our year to
live. Groups are facilitated by Dean Bellerby who is a Certified
Integral Coach and Year To Live group facilitator, and whose personal
practice is informed by Buddhism and the Ridhwan School's Diamond
Approach. For more information on Year To Live groups, visit:
