6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
We all wish to be happy, and in contemporary culture, we are bombarded with so many messages telling us that happiness is about feeling good, acquiring things, being young and wrinkle-free. But true happiness, what the ancient Greeks called eudaimonia, results from engaging life with meaning and purpose. How is it that turning toward death and grief can enrich our lives with meaning?
Come join us for this interactive talk, offered as part of the September 2018 mindfulness month at the Thomas Memorial Library, designed to evoke wonder about the possibilities of the human spirit and the meaning of a life well-lived. The evening will include stories shared from Dr. Baugher’s forthcoming book Contemplative Caregiving: Finding Healing, Compassion, and Spiritual Growth through End-of-Life Care (Shambhala Publications, 2019), as well as a guided meditation and group discussion.
We’re practicing Mindfulness this September! “When you change yourself, you change the world.”
