A Year to Live

This year-long, monthly group, based on the book A Year to Live by Stephen Levine, is a spiritual journey to wake up, face the inevitability of death, and live the life we have to the fullest. The premise of the practice is what if you found out you only had one year left to live? How would you spend it? What preparations would you make? What would you do with the precious time you had left? Since one will never know when their last year will begin, why not prepare for it now?

 

Meeting one Saturday afternoon a month, this process is open to anyone who is interested, but it is a serious undertaking and will be closed group once it begins. We recommend that you attend all sessions, but you may miss a maximum of three if necessary. Please feel free to email info@taleefcollective.org  if you have questions about registration.

 

Class Dates: Saturdays 1/27, 2/24, 3/24, 4/21, 5/26, 6/23, 7/28, 8/11, 9/15, 10/27, 11/17, 12/8, and 1/5/19. All classes meet at Taleef Collective Fremont Campus, from 3 PM-5:30 PM, once per month.

Cost: $475 for the entire year. A 10% discount will be given if paid in full in advance. Payment can be made as a one-time registration fee or by monthly auto-payments.
