About the Course


Many people are afraid to talk about death because they feel like it might make them depressed or sad. Actually, when we develop the wisdom of thinking about death and impermanence we experience a beautiful sense of relief and confidence that removes our fear.

Fear usually comes from “unknowing” and in this meditation day course, we will learn exactly what happens at death and how to prepare for it; through simply doing this our life becomes deeply meaningful. And when our life is over, we will feel like we are just “returning home”.

We will also learn about the powerful Buddhist practice called Powa (transference of consciousness) which insures that we experience a pure and happy life in the future.

“Preparing for death is one of the kindest and wisest things we can do for both ourself and others”.

From the book Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
