9/8/2013 – Aging & Illness 2

This Sunday, Nancy guided our reflections in three ways, focusing on ways to meet aging and illness in the most awakened ways possible.  First were excerpts from videos from Stephen and Ondrea Levine, longtime teachers on this topic, now experiencing chronic illnesses themselves .  Second, we paired up and shared an exercise in the Ah breath, a way of exploring letting go more profoundly.  And third, we closed with a guided meditation from Ayya Khema’s “Who is Myself?”         Here are links to those resources:
