Sravasti Abbey will offer a retreat called “Precious Life, Facing Death” from May 25–28.

Venerable Tenzin Kacho, who has been a Tibetan nun for 25 years, will lead the class. 

The course will allow participants to look into their own experience and further prepare for the inevitable — impermanence.

“It is natural that we cling to the things that we love, and to this life. Buddhist practice helps us be prepared for our own decline and end of life, so we can appreciate this life and live more fully,” the abbey website reads.

Participants can register for the retreat here.
