Monday, October 15, 2018 - 7:00 - 9:00 pm

FREE

"Life and death are a package deal. They cannot be pulled apart and we cannot truly live unless we are aware of death. Death is not waiting for us at the end of a long road. Death is always with us, in the marrow of every passing moment. She is the secret teacher hiding in plain sight. She helps us to discover what matters most. And the good news is we don't have to wait until the end of our lives to realize the wisdom that death has to offer."

In this fascinating talk, Frank will share the distilled, hard-won lessons synthesized from 30 years of being with dying. He will introduce his The Five Invitations, principals that show us how to wake up fully to our lives. They can be understood as best practices for anyone navigating a life transition, coping with loss or serious illness or a personal crisis; they guide us toward appreciating life's preciousness.

Weaving together pragmatic tools, real life stories and ancient wisdom, Frank helps us discover how an awareness of death can be a valuable companion on the road to living well, forging a rich and meaningful life free of regret.

Bio: Frank Ostaseski is an internationally respected Buddhist teacher and visionary co-founder of the Zen Hospice Project, and founder of the Metta Institute. He has lectured at Harvard Medical School, the Mayo Clinic, Google and teaches at major spiritual centers around the globe. Frank is the 2018 recipient of the prestigious Humanities Award from the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine. His groundbreaking work has been featured on the Bill Moyers PBS series On Our Own Terms, highlighted on The Oprah Winfrey Show, and honored by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. ~ Wikipedia and Metta Institute.

Frank Ostaseski is the author of The Five Invitations: Discovering What Death Can Teach Us About Living Fully. The book may be purchased at the event and following his talk, Frank will be available to autograph your copy.

Directed by Gurinder Chadha, VICEROY'S HOUSE tells the true story of the final months of British rule in India.

Viceroy's House in Delhi was the home of the British rulers of India. After 300 years, that rule was coming to an end. For 6 months in 1947, Lord Mountbatten (played by Hugh Bonneville), great grandson of Queen Victoria, assumed the post of the last Viceroy, charged with handing India back to its people.

The film's story unfolds within that great House. Upstairs lived Mountbatten together with his wife (Gillian Anderson) and daughter (Lily Travers); downstairs lived their 500 Hindu, Muslim and Sikh servants. As the political elite - Nehru, Jinnah and Gandhi - converged on the House to wrangle over the birth of independent India, conflict erupted. A decision was taken to divide the country and create a new Muslim homeland: Pakistan. It was a decision which consequences reverberate to this day ...

The Elder Technology Assistance Group (ETAG) will present an informational workshop for those 55 + at Lorne Park Library.

Topic: What's new? What's free? What has value?

Each year, new technology hits the "shelves" that pushes our community into the next chapter of technological advancement and normalization. Not only is it important to know about opportunities created by new tech, but also which technologies generate value for users versus those that can be a waste of time. Join us for a workshop about the possibilities that new technologies create, which apps and services are free of charge and worthwhile, and what technologies (health, VR, AI) are creating value for us at an exponential rate.

Refreshments will be served.

Please register by email, by phone, or in person at the library.
