“Being Mortal” and “The Guest House”

The Islamic sage Rumi wrote, “This being human is a guest house.” This morning we’ll explore questions such as: What does it mean to be “mortal”? Drawing inspiration from Atul Gawande’s Being Mortal, we’ll reflect upon end-of-life issues, our human stories, and what we make of life’s cycles and passages. What is in our hands? How do we practice both holding on and letting go? How can we approach the end of life with compassion for ourselves and one another?
