Exploring Death and the Art of Dying

In Room(s): not specified

Friday and Saturday will focus specifically on the Tibetan Book of the Dead. This is a specific terma from the Vajrayana tradition and one that Trungpa Rinpoche held dear.

Sunday will be devoted to translating these traditional teachings into the language of Shambhala, examining the Shambhala Buddhist view of death, and discussing the support that families need before, during and after the loss of a loved one. We also include a discussion on practicalities and introduce Shambhala ceremonies and rituals.

Advance registration is advised since space will be limited, particularly for Sunday.

Friday evening and Saturday: Temple Sukkat Shalom, 211 Cordova Street

Sunday: Juneau Shambhala Center

Suggest Donation:*

Full weekend: $220

Friday night and Saturday only: $160
