Tibetan Buddhism contains a vast wealth of knowledge concerning every stage of the death process and how best to prepare for it. The famous teachings of the "Tibetan Book of the Dead" explain the 'bardo', or state between lives. In fact, six bardos are traditionally explained. These six are: life, dreams, meditation, the moment of death, luminosity and transmigration. This weekend course will provide an explanation of these key moments and how best to train the mind for awakening.

As well as exploring how to transform our attitudes around death and dying, we will also look at the subject of impermanence in general and how to train the mind to recognise and accept change. This reduces both clinging and fear, and enables us to live in the present with joy and compassion.

Course donations

Since January 2015 all our Dharma and meditation courses have been offered without a suggested course fee. 

In the Buddhist tradition one practices generosity, or Dana, by making monetary offerings for the teachings. This generosity is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is an offering given freely from the heart in appreciation of the Dharma. 

Please read Lama Zangmo's letter for further information.
