Second Sunday Dharma Series

At a fundamental level, all dharma practice is preparation for our physical death. Frank Ostaseski has shepherded thousands of people through this final transition, as well as the smaller “births and deaths” that happen to all beings throughout this lifetime. Drawing on his experience at the Zen Hospice (which he founded) and with his own health issues recovering from a recent stroke, in this session he’ll share stories and teachings with IMCW teacher Rebecca Hines and take your live questions. 

We’ve invited a series of world-renowned teachers to join us for an informal virtual gathering, where they’ll share what’s on their mind and alive in their personal practice. IMCW teachers will moderate the sessions, which might range from an informal conversation, to a dharma talk and Q&A with the audience. Sessions will begin and end with a centering meditation.

This special series is being offered in the spirit of generosity. You must register for each session in advance, and will be asked to make a donation that aligns with your circumstances. No one will be turned away for financial reasons. You will receive a link to that month’s live webinar, and each participant will receive a link afterwards to the recording (which will be available for 90 days). 

This event is a fundraiser for the Insight Meditation Community of Washington, DC. An option is available so that none may be turned away, but participants are strongly encouraged to make a donation by registering for a Zoom link below.

Note: Because this is an online event, participants are encouraged to find space of relative quiet, limiting the amount of interaction with others in the environment as much as possible. Participants may join by internet or via phone. 

Participants will be given the Zoom link in the registration confirmation email and again via email the week before the event begins.
