Death and Dying: Encountering The Bardos

About us

In this six-week series, we’ll look at how Tibetan Buddhists view the approach of death, and also why they look forward to the “bardo” period after death as a great opportunity. We’ll explore questions like: “What is the mind that travels from death to rebirth?”  “How does this understanding relate to daily life?” “Can these teachings be adapted to the West?” “When we accept the inevitability of death, what do we find out about life?” “What have Westerners learned as they work with dying people?”

The teachers will be Jane DiGiacomo, and Joe Hetherington, both of whom are Buddhist practitioners who work with dying people, and Shastri Russell Rodgers, who has studied and practiced Buddhist meditation for 43 years.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
