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.

Mercury Enters Libra

It’s the week of Burning Man, the temporary, intentional, alternative, art-filled community on the playas of Nevada. Mercury, messenger of the Sun, enters Libra this week. Libra is the equalizer, a sign of balance and right human relations. Sometimes with Libra, we can be indecisive and confused while learning how to make balanced and right choices. Sometimes to keep the peace we communicate only what others want to hear. Eventually, we learn how to speak from the heart.

    Best of Santa Cruz County

    The 2013 Santa Cruz County Readers' Poll and Critics’ Picks It’s our biggest issue of the year, and in it, your votes—more than 6,500 of them—determined the winners of The Best of Santa Cruz County Readers’ Poll. New to the long list of local restaurants, shops and other notables that captured your interest: Best Beer Selection, Best Locally Owned Business, Best Customer Service and Best Marijuana Dispensary. In the meantime, many readers were ever so chatty online about potential new categories. Some of the suggestions that stood out: Best Teen Program and Best Web Design/Designer. But what about: Dog Park, Church, Hotel, Local Farm, Therapist (I second that!) or Sports Bar—not to be confused with Bra. Our favorite suggestion: Best Act of Kindness—one reader noted Café Gratitude and the free meals it offered to the Santa Cruz Police Department in the aftermath of recent crimes. Perhaps some of these can be woven into next year’s ballot, so stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy the following pages and take note of our Critics’ Picks, too, beginning on page 91. A big thanks for voting—and for reading—and an even bigger congratulations to all of the winners. Enjoy.  -Greg Archer, EditorBest of Santa Cruz County Readers’ Poll INDEX

     

    A Cab To Be Coveted

    I first tasted Villa del Monte’s 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon at a Fourth of July party, where the hosts had bought a case of it because they love it and didn’t want to run out. It’s one of those wines that will grab you—in the best way—with its full body and rich fruit characteristics.
