Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully (May 1)


Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully: A Buddhist Perspective on Death & Dying to Help Ourselves and Others
Saturday, May 1st • 10am – 1pm
with Resident Teacher, Gen 
Kelsang Chogyop

Buddha taught practices to transform every facet of our lives into the spiritual path. Did you know he also taught how to transform death and dying? In this unusual course we will learn to demystify and remove fear from the process of dying, and how to use the death process to propel our mind into a pure and peaceful state of existence.  This course will also offer advice on how to help others maintain a peaceful & positive mind, freedom from fear, and to move their mind towards enlightenment as they navigate the death process. Everyone is welcome.

Session 2: 11:45am – 1:00pm
