This weekend course – led by Rosamund Oliver – guides participants through the essential teachings on dying and death from the Buddhist tradition of Tibet. It offers a glimpse of this practical wisdom and sacred inspiration, which is so beneficial for today’s world. The universal message of these teachings speaks to people from all walks of life and is relevant for those of any spiritual tradition or none. They show us how we can face uncertainty and change, transform difficulty and fear, prepare for death and support others to die with dignity.

The weekend also gives essential guidance on medtation and the practice of Essential Phowa, a practice for healing and for the moment of death. It addresses how we can prepare ourselves and how to accompany someone nearing death, so that they can die with a peace of mind and even with confidence.

The course is open to everyone.

The universality of the message of these teachings can bring benefit to anyone who wants to explore this topic.

Fees: Standard €90; Concession €60.
