In The Mirror of Death: An Introduction to the Tibetan Understanding of Death & Dying

In The Mirror of Death: An Introduction to the Tibetan Understanding of Death & Dying

This eight week course is an introduction to the Tibetan Buddhist understanding of death and dying offering a glimpse of the practical wisdom and sacred inspiration of this tradition. The course combines the essential teachings on this topic as presented in The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying by Sogyal Rinpoche.

The course also includes essential guidance on meditation and the practice of Essential Phowa, a practice for healing and for the moment of death.

The study of the teachings is held within the framework of listening, reflection or contemplation and meditation. Special emphasis lies on the second wisdom tool, reflection or contemplation. Students are introduced to the formal practice of contemplation as a way to deepen their understanding and to encourage personal engagement.

The course also addresses how students may best accompany someone nearing death and help the dying person to meet death not empty handed, but – reassured by loving support and care – with a peace of mind and even with confidence.

 I stumbled upon Holistic Events while googling on avenues to announce our Silent Meditation Event. It has been a refreshing, clean, wonderful experience joining Holistic Events and sharing our event through their platform. The whole process was simple and the best part is the way they promote events through their LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. Thank you to Petra and her team. Truly a gift of love to all.

 Just a wonderful page to share retreats. Petra is offering her service so generously for free. I respect Petra very much and am in awe for this possibility to share with similar minded people a wide range of retreats and workshops in Australia. Thank you Petra and your team for this amazing platform!

 I have found the Holistic Events Australia platform an easy one to list my event on and then feel very supported to help me get what I have to offer out there to a much wider audience than my own personal networks.. 😃
