Are you the kind of person who is going to die? According to Buddhism, there IS a way to end the cycle of death and rebirth. But how? In this weekend retreat, we will gain some familiarity with the death process in order to be more relaxed when the time of death comes and understand how an awareness of our own mortality can help us live a better life. To paraphrase the famous Tibetan Yogi Milarepa, 'I used to be afraid to die then I practiced the Buddhist path. Now, whenever death comes, I can greet it without the slightest fear'. We will also discuss important questions of what practices, prayers and mantras are beneficial for those dying and deceased as well as how to handle the body upon death. Class will be lead by Venerable Losang Drimay. California native, Venerable Drimay has a BA in Asian Studies and has been an ordained Buddhist nun since 1991. Venerable Drimay has been teaching Buddhism throughout the United States for over ten years.

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

 

Scorpio Sun, New Moon Eclipse, Mercury Direct

The Sun enters Scorpio’s mysteries Thursday under a new moon and partial solar eclipse (something essential has come to an end, its purpose completed). In Scorpio we harbor secrets, are devoted to something deep, dark and hidden. Sometimes it’s ourselves. We can bring great suspect to our assessment of others. Scorpio is the scorpion, the serpent and the eagle—three levels of development. As the serpent we take shelter in our beliefs. Sometimes we bite (or sting). The eagle vanquishes old beliefs through its sharp intellect, soaring high in the air, seeking to understand through perspective. Understanding releases us from the bondage of fear. The eagle is like the mother soothing feelings of mistrust, offering protection. Knowledge does this, too.
