Mortality Awareness

When did you first become aware of death?

Did you forget?

Did you remember again?

What are your beliefs about death?

Do they trigger fear of death?

If you were to die today, what would be your biggest regret?

Death can be denied — or death can be a teacher.

We practice mortality awareness to make the most of our lives

as we move toward life completion.

What is the holiday gift that only you can give of yourself?

Can you imagine a New Year’s ritual to cross the threshold to become an Elder?

Do you hear the call to serve something larger than yourself? What is the service that only you can give?

Can you make the conditions of your aging conducive to the conditions needed for your spiritual practice?

Can you practice forgiveness as a transmission of wisdom?

Can you practice gratitude as a transmission of wisdom?

Who are you free to be now?

Thank you for reading my book and my blog.

May you be healthy, safe, and loved in the new year.



Are you seeking inspiration during these difficult times? Are you longing for motivation to do your spiritual practice?

I was interviewed by Sandie Sedgbeer of the No BS Spiritual Book Club about my 10 favorite spiritual books. It’s an entertaining and inspiring conversation about how these books shaped me and my spiritual path:

May these authors open doorways for you, as they did for me.
