Death is a topic that we often shy away from, and its realities are hidden in our cultural context. Yet the Buddha taught that contemplating death is a practice of liberation – one that vastly enhances the quality of our life. By looking directly at death, we access our appreciation and joy for this human life and its transformative potential. Join us in the foothills of the White Mountains for a residential retreat in which we delve deeply into the liberating practices of death and dying, drawing on the profound resources of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Among topics and practices explored include Transference of Consciousness (poa), the bardo (in-between state) and the contemplative practices of death. We will also explore spiritual care for self and others at the time of death, and practical preparation for our own death.
