Death & Rebirth: Making Friends with Death
For most of our culture, death often presents an anxious situation, ridden with fear, loss, hopelessness and grief. This is an opportunity to explore a more expansive view of this natural transition and learn how it is possible to face death with peace, dignity and no regrets.
This daylong meditation retreat offers you invaluable input as to the process of death and rebirth in the Tibetan tradition. It will show/remind participants how to find meaning in life, resolve conflicts, and develop the practical and contemplative skills to help yourself and others at the time of death. Discussion, Q and A and meditation opportunities will all feature in the day’s schedule.

Open to all students (especially those with a particular interest in death and dying), hospice workers, and all caregivers. Please register and make your donation below. You will receive a Zoom link by automated email soon after we receive your registration.
