Living Well, Dying Well

In Buddhism, life is viewed as a continuous cycle encompassing birth, ageing, sickness, and death. Despite understanding the impermanence of life, we often seek attachment to temporary things, leading to suffering.

Join us for an intensive one-day retreat with Ajahn Amaro, who will guide us in the astute and ardent practice of living well, preparing for the inevitable stages of ageing, sickness and death.
