Frank Ostaseski is a Buddhist teacher, lecturer, and author focusing on contemplative end-of-life care. His book is The Five Invitations: Discovering What Death Can Teach Us About Living Fully.
In May 02020, during the COVID19 pandemic, we screened Ostaseski's 02017 Seminar along with a new live Q&A with Frank Ostaseski and Alexander Rose addressing death during these uncertain and challenging times.
It’s a lot more than “Seize the day.” We learn from the dying to push away nothing; to lose the habit of postponing things; to show up entirely; to find rest amid whatever; to go ahead and be surprised. You can look death right in the eye, tough as it is, and life lights up.
Frank Ostaseki, one of the world’s great end-of-life counselors, has attended over a thousand dyings. He was a cofounder of the renowned Zen Hospice in San Francisco and is the author of The Five Invitations: Discovering What Death Can Teach Us About Living Fully.
