S1: The Wisdom of Holistic Aging with Deah Kinion

“The biggest regret of dying patients is that they did not live the life they knew they were meant to live.” We are all aging, even as society celebrates youth, busyness, and accomplishments. We do not want to think about slowing down, emptiness, or dying. Yet, what if we contemplate & embrace our mortality? Aging and dying can be a spiritual practice and a transformative power to cultivate love, forgiveness and compassion.
