Happy Spring! May the season around you bring vitalizing energy of new growth and and co creation to you!
I had the opportunity to speak at the MN Hospice and Palliative annual conference this past week. Its a 3 day event with hundreds of registrants. I was only there for the day I was speaking. It was such a thought provoking and uplifting day. The keynote speaker was amazing here is his bio from the conf. and some thoughts that he shared. I am definitely going to get his book!
Frank Ostazeski is an internationally respected Buddhist teacher and pioneer in end of life care. He is the visionary co-founder of the Zen Hospice Project, and founder of the Metta Institute. He has companioned thousands on the precipice of death, trained countless clinicians and caregivers and synthesized 30 years of being with dying into his personal brand of wisdom. He has lectured at Harvard Medical School, the Mayo Clinic, leading corporations like 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 H.H. the Dalai Lama. He is the author of The Five Invitations: Discovering What Death Can Teach Us About Living Fully.
Among the other things he shared during his talk he invited us to use these four questions at the end of our day to help with mindful presence in the world:
What inspired you today?
What challenged you today?
What surprised you today?
What did you learn about love today?
The overarching question related to these 4 is what do you notice about your feelings and what is your relationship to these feelings?
It is a great way to think about your day for yourself and have conversation with others.

I had the opportunity to meet an inspired uplifter at the healing touch regional conf this March. Her name is Jacquelyn Fletcher and she is an outstanding author and speaker. Her very special books and cards really called to me, I got three of them and some cards and would have gotten more if budget would have been different at the time. They are inspirational for self and for others. And – since I want to share access to them with everyone! She gave me a special link to her etsy site and a code for a discount just for you!
