|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 11:30am on Sunday, repeating until March 26, 2017

Sundays 11:30am – 1pm
with Kadam Holly McGregor

We are alive; therefore we will die. This is the simplest, most obvious truth of our existence and yet very few of us have really come to terms with it. Through Buddha’s insight into death and dying, we can develop an awareness of our own mortality in a way that will totally enrich and transform our life. We will come to understand what happens when we die and learn to face our own death and help others die with grace, clarity and fearlessness. Everyone of us has experienced, or will experience, the loss of someone close to us. We will be introduced to methods that Buddha taught for transforming loss into wisdom, and we will learn about a very special Buddhist practice, called powa, or transference of consciousness, which we can engage in on behalf of those who have died.
