Slides from a webinar presented on 10.12.12. The webinar is called “Dying – Doing It Differently”. Maneesha talks about how death is 'coming out of the closet'; the need to reverse the medicalisation of dying in order to acknowledge and support the hugely potential time that it is, psychologically and spiritually. She discusses why someone might want to die consciously; why just being alive isn't, in itself, the kind of preparation needed for a graceful, easy, even ecstatic dying; she points out the similarities between meditating and dying, and introduces the Sammasati Support-Person Training for 2013.
Included are a couple of meditations in which all are invited to participate, and some suggestions around being at the bedside of someone who is very ill or dying; and time for questions too.
