Series: Living Fully: What Mortality Can Teach Us
What lessons can we learn about living a full and happy life by reflecting on illness, aging and death? We will delve in to the impacts of modern living on how we age and die; explore open questions raised by our very mortality; and provide guided meditations to prepare for life’s transitions large and small. This workshop is based on the book Being Mortal by Atul Gawande and teachings by Pema Chödrön on death and dying.
Sharon Lukert is a staff chaplain and ACPE Candidate Educator at Gundersen Health System. She has been a practicing Buddhist within a Tibetan lineage for more than 20 years and has studied under Pema Chödrön. Sharon is also a meditation instructor and has facilitated workshops and study groups focused on Buddhism, meditation, death and dying education, and bereavement support.
