The Five Invitations: Discovering What Death Can Teach Us About Living Fully
by Frank Ostaseski
This beautiful rumination on life, death, and the choices we make as we live is a deep summary on what is possible when we lean into our experience. The Five Invitations Ostaseski puts forth are: Don’t Wait; Welcome Everything, Push Away Nothing; Bring Your Whole Self to the Experience; Find a Place of Rest in the Middle of Things; and Cultivate Don’t Know Mind. “These Five Invitations can be understood as best practices for anyone coping with loss or navigating any sort of transition or crisis; they guide us toward appreciating life’s preciousness.” Gorgeous, spiritual-minded read.
