Graceful Exit: Preparing for a Good Death – Dechen Chöling near Limoges, France

May 20, 2023 - May 27, 2023

A Unique In-Person or Online (live or taped) Workshop by Andrew at the Dechen Chöling Shambhala Center near Limoges in France – May 20 to May 27, 2023

All of life is held within the context of death. By acknowledging and preparing for death now, you will find yourself living more fully and fearlessly.

In this programme you will have the opportunity to learn how to die a good death, and how to help others die, exploring meditations and contemplations that prepare you for letting go.

The Buddhist tradition proclaims, “If you die before you die, then when you die you will not die.” With preparation, you can transcend death, turning the greatest obstacle into a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

The bardo teachings lead to the death of death. The journey through the bardos is a journey into the mind, so by exploring the bardos you are exploring yourself. The teachings also apply to any moment that ends, like the loss of a relationship, or a job.

Although it describes the spiritual preparation from a Buddhist perspective, the material offered and practiced is tailored for anyone interested in a non-material approach to death. ​
