Death & Dharma

August 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

How might we understand the impermanence of life within the expanding universe? In what ways might death inform our relationships with strangers, loved ones, and our own selves? These questions are the inspiration for a new series of lectures and meditations presented by the Brooklyn Zen Center (BZC) and Green-Wood that explore the complexities of death, dying, and the hereafter.

Led by teachers from the BZC, each session will begin indoors with an insightful discussion that highlights Buddhist teachings on life and death. Afterward, just around sunset, attendees will gather for an outdoor meditation (weather permitting) within the Cemetery’s tranquil greenspace.

Whether you’re a practicing Buddhist or just someone looking to gain a little peace of mind, each session will offer thoughtful opportunities for reflection in the company of fellow seekers. Each session is stand-alone, topics include:

Tuesday, July 25, 2017: Contemplation on Impermanence and the Illusory Nature of this Body

Tuesday, August 1, 2017: Embracing Expansive Awareness
