The Art of Dying to Live: An Exploration of Life, Death, and the Afterlife
February 23 - February 27
Andrew is pleased to be a part of this extensive online conference and practice retreat, The Art of Dying to Live. This is produced by THUS/Menla a great organization that Andrew has had the pleasure of presenting with in the past. Andrew and this lineup of wonderful, impressive speakers will ensure a remarkable event.
This is THUS/Menla’s new incarnation of a powerfully transformative event Tibet House US launched with the New York Open Center 20 years ago, which introduced thousands to the cheerful exploration of the realities of death and dying as the doorway to living ever more vibrantly in the precious moments of life. Over these five days, experienced practitioners will present visions and lead practices drawn from spiritual wisdom, scientific insight, and time-tested experiential methods of dealing with death and dying that immeasurably enrich the lives of those facing death, as well as those facing bereavement.
Join us to explore ancient and modern understandings and engagements with the arts of dying and living through the lenses of different traditions, including Tibetan and Zen Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Judaic, and Shamanic traditions. Study the nature of death as part of life, and compare all visions of possible afterlife experiences from existential to theistic to shamanic.
