Jill Shepherd will give a Dharma talk from her home in New Zealand via video conference. Jill visited BIMS for a weekend non-residential retreat in 2016. We have been hoping to have her return to Bellingham.
Jill's talk will be on aging as a spiritual practice, the subject of our onging study group disscussing the application of Buddhist teachings to the experience of aging, illness and death. Our group is using topics from the book Older and Wiser: Classical Buddhist Teachings on Aging, Sickness, and Death by Mu Soeng, Gloria Taraniya Ambrosia and Andrew Olendzki.
