Understanding death and impermanence – teachings for a happy life
Day course with Kelsang Chogdrub
We are alive therefore we will die. Even though it is the simplest, most obvious truth, we find it very hard to accept. Contemplating our own mortality leads to a profoundly worry-free and happy life. By cutting through our worldly concerns the meditation on death quickly eliminates all our ordinary worries and anxieties.
On this day course Kelsang Chogdrub will explain the meditation on death and how it destroys our desirous attachment, thereby leading us to an enjoyable and successful spiritual life. He will also explain the process of dying and how we can help and support others die peacefully.
What to expect
On this day course you will get to hear teachings on the subject matter, followed by guided meditations. The meditations will give you the opportunity to deepen the newly gained knowledge. Short Buddhist prayers will be played as a preparation for the teachings and meditations.
During the breaks there will be tea, cakes and a vegan/vegetarian lunch offered.
