This is part of an on-going series of online retreats designed to give you a complete preparation for death by understanding the three death bardos or “transitional processes.” Each retreat is a stand-alone program. This is a unique program in that I have the great pleasure to be teaching it with renowned teacher, author and worldwide authority in Tibetan Buddhism, Professor Robert A.F. Thurman.
If we are prepared, death is the crowning moment of life – our greatest opportunity for enlightenment. The karma that brought us into this life is exhausted, and the habits that will propel us into our next one have not yet formed. This gap (bardo) provides a golden opportunity for rapid spiritual progress.
These two weekends explore the energies of this bardo, showing how they also manifest in each thought and emotion. With specific meditations that prepare us for this part of the death process, we will learn how to glimpse this bardo every night when we fall asleep, and between each and every thought.
