Also, this week, you will find three practices to help us investigate our relationship with dying and how we wish to pass, because eventually we all do. It's part of our we live.
During August, we will continue expanding ways to practice mindfulness with our mindful eating practice on Thursday and a walking meditation practice on Tuesdays. If you haven't joined one of our live practices yet, I hope you will during August.
