The Death of Death
Bardos for the Modern Age
Tuesday Evenings, February 7, 2017 through March 28, 2017
The bardo teachings are intended for the end stages of life, but a closer reading reveals their deeper meaning: they apply to every moment. Any situation that ends — a job, relationship, day, or moment of mind — abides by bardo principles. Learning how to die is learning how to live. This class will reveal the hidden dimensions and vast applicability of the bardos, joining ancient wisdom with modern knowledge. The journey through the bardos is a journey through the mind — by exploring them we are exploring ourselves.
What are the best meditations for death? How can I help others die? Can I help them after death? Learn about advance directives, signs of impending death, hospice, grief, funeral issues, and medical and legal challenges. What about suicide, organ donation, sudden death, euthanasia, abortion, or the death of a pet? With preparation, we can transcend death, transforming the greatest obstacle into a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity – for ourselves and for others.
