Please join us for a special weekend of Buddhist teachings focused on death and dying practices and working with the groundlessness of our current life situations with Acharya Eric Spiegel, central holder of the teachings on death practices for the Shambhala mandala.

In this time of COVID-19, when death suddenly becomes so apparent, there is no better time to explore the meaning and practice of bravery where we often encounter fear, grief, anxiety and uncertainty.

Impermanence and change in general, and the idea of death in particular, are moments fraught with difficulty but also filled with deep potential. Buddhist teachings say that times of transition – intermediary times known as “bardo” – are moments when we can experience enormous freedom and possibility, but what we usually do is freeze and resist. This weekend will provide instruction and practice to work with the teachings on death and dying as they manifest throughout our lives.
