The habit of escape does not serve. Pain + Resistance = Suffering. It’s counter intuitive but healing is always found by turning toward the suffering. Intentionally becoming more permeable, present, and mindfully curious engages our resources, resilience, reduces the sting of the unpleasant and makes us ready to meet whatever shows up.
THE FIVE INVITATIONS
Discovering What Death
Can Teach Us About Living Fully
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, helping us to discover what matters most.
Life and death are a package deal. They cannot be pulled apart and we cannot truly live unless we are aware of death. The Five Invitations is an exhilarating meditation on the meaning of life and how maintaining an ever-present consciousness of death can bring us closer to our truest selves.
