An internationally respected Buddhist teacher, Frank Ostaseski is the visionary cofounder of the Zen Hospice Project and Metta Institute. He has sat on the precipice of death with more than a thousand people. He has trained countless clinicians and caregivers in the art of mindful and compassionate care. In The Five Invitations, he distills the lessons gleaned over decades of selfless service offering an evocative and stirring guide that points to a radical path to transformation.

The Five Invitations:

  • Don’t Wait

  • Welcome Everything, Push Away Nothing

  • Bring Your Whole Self to the Experience

  • Find a Place of Rest in the Middle of Things

  • Cultivate Don’t Know Mind

Death infamously reveals what matters most. It provides the wondrous awareness that we are part of something greater. Why wait until the end of your life to learn its vital and inspiring lessons? Why wait to feel whole, connected, and courageous until the time to act has passed? Wholeness does not mean perfection. It means no part left out. Let the lessons of death connect you to the truth, bravery, and potential within and outside of yourself so you can live your life now exactly as you would want to leave it.

Don’t hesitate to bring a friend or come alone and mingle with your Hivery community. Guests will enjoy complimentary lite bites and local wines by Bee Hunter Wine and sips from Living GTS Foods Kombucha.
ALL ARE WELCOME!
