Love, and Death (Retreat Talk) –
To live our lives fully, we need to embrace the natural unfolding of birthing and dying. Yet we are deeply conditioned to resist loss, to pull away from fear and grief. Through a powerful Inuit story, Skeleton Woman, shared by Clarissa Estes, this talk explores how our practices of presence can open us to what we avoid, and free us to love without holding back.
– A talk given on 2016-12-29 at the IMCW New Year’s silent retreat in Reisterstown, MD.
