Graceful Exit: Preparing for a Good Death—Online
September 4 @ 3:30 pm - September 7 @ 2:00 pm
with Andrew Holecek
SEPTEMBER 4 – 7, 2020
All of life is held within the context of death.
In this online program, you will be guided through rich teachings on death and dying from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. For anyone interested in learning how to prepare for death, both spiritually and practically, for themselves or to help someone else who is dying. Experience talks, guided contemplations, meditations, and discussion groups to learn how to die a good death, and how to help others die.
By acknowledging and preparing for death now, we will find ourselves living more fully and fearlessly. Celebrate the preciousness of life, and ready ourselves and others for this final journey.
As the Buddhist tradition proclaims, “If you die before you die, then when you die you will not die.” With preparation, we can transcend death, turning the greatest obstacle into a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and even attain enlightenment. The bardo (“gap, transitional process”) teachings lead to the death of death. The journey through the bardos is a journey into our mind, so by exploring the bardos we are exploring ourselves. They also apply to any moment that ends—which means these teachings apply directly to daily life.
