Death and Dying

The Victoria Shambhala Meditation Centre presents

Death And Dying As Spiritual Practice.

Join us as we take a plunge into the realms that await us in the dying process, learning how to transform obstacle into opportunity. Explore the final death bardo, where we spend forty-nine days after dying and are hurled by the winds of karma into our next life. In this course we will examine death, the intermediate state and re-birth in Tibetan Buddhism. By becoming familiar with the bardo and preparing for it now, we can discover what to expect in the process, when to expect it and what to do about it. We also learn about practices to help those who are dying or have recently died.

Discover the many opportunities this bardo presents for spiritual development.
