Event description


In June 2008, Karen Johnson, co-founder of the Diamond Approach, recorded an open day-long workshop on the Diamond Approach to the Bardos (life, death and dying with awareness). In it she shares her near death experience and the awakenings and insights she's gleaned from them. Karen’s central message is that by waking up in life we can traverse death with more awareness and realization. Together we’ll watch the DVD which includes a morning and afternoon session of: teaching, inquiry and questions & comments, where she spontaneously shares more of her experiences and wisdom.
