About the Event

Four Wednesdays, July 3 - 24

In-Person at The Jung Center

Originally published in 2018, Walking Each Other Home is composed of conversations between Ram Dass and his longtime collaborator Mirabai Bush. It is Ram Dass’s final book – his last testimony to the generations who have followed his teachings – in which, he reports, “I talk about our fear of death and ways to go beyond that fear so that we can be identified with our spiritual selves and live more meaningful lives.” Join historian Mark Ryan and hospice chaplain Ginger Clarkson, longtime collaborators themselves, as they conduct a group tour through this wise and joyous discussion of life’s late stages.
