Karen Wyatt, MD – What Really Matters: The Transformative Wisdom of the Dying


How do we navigate the suffering of our current world to find inspiration for spiritual growth? 

 

Join Dr. Karen Wyatt as she shares stories gleaned from her years of work as a hospice physician and the spiritual lessons she learned from her patients at the end of life, as told in the book  ‘7 Lessons for Living from the Dying’. Her exploration of these lessons leads to an expanded vision of life’s possibilities and a transformed relationship with death.

 

Our youth-focused society has long avoided the subject of death and dying, but the current global pandemic has placed the reality of our mortality into central focus. As we cope with overwhelming loss and grief we need a new framework to help us navigate these challenges and transcend them to find beauty in the midst of devastation. Ultimately these “dark times” of life can be the doorway to spiritual growth.  Karen’s teaching is inspired by her hospice work and also by her own personal journey of grief following the suicide death of her father. She utilizes storytelling, spiritual wisdom and practical tools to show the way to deeper love, forgiveness, and meaning in life by embracing death and impermanence.

    1. Hi Jack, I’m sorry you were not able to attend. Unfortunately it looks like you signed-up too late for the reminder, which usually goes out an hour before the start of the event. Our records show the payment of 5 pounds for the event, which we are happy to refund – and you should have received the recording by now as well. Do let me know if you haven’t yet, and I can send it to you again. Hope this helps. Best wishes, Jessica
