A world of dew

and yet, and yet...

on death and dying

This community is dedicated to a radical spiritual challenge - what if you knew you had only one year to live?

When it's over, I don't want to wonder
if I have made of my life something particular, and real.
I don't want to find myself sighing and frightened
or full of argument.
I don't want to end up simply having visited this world.

Titel oder Beschreibung

Death is inevitable - a simple truth, yet most of us deny their own mortality. Especially in societies where myths of eternal youth and unlimited medical possibilities are cultivated, the occupation with death is often considered morbid.

But the preparation for one's own death can become a life changing adventure, an opportunity to examine old priorities and to increase mindfulness on the ever changing, vibrant life.

This community is supposed to be a save haven for those who have taken up the "a year to live practice" as a part of their spiritual path and who would like to share their experiences with an online sangha.

Although the practice stands in a Buddhist context, people of all religious(or nonreligious) backgrounds are welcome to join. You might want to share your own expriences and thoughts on loss, grief and mortality. Artwork is also appreciated.

This is a moderated community. Discussions are encouraged, but please try to be respectful.

It is *not* a place for mere glorification of death/suicide or death porn.
