Death, Dying, Living: Tools for the Path

Sun., October 29, 2023
10:00 am - 11:15 am
New York Online

Four Sundays, October 29 – November 19, 2023, 10:00 – 11:15 am Eastern time

You are invited to an online series of conversations about how to incorporate Buddhist teachings into living a more joyful life and experiencing a better death. This class will be highly interactive, with journaling exercises, small group and partner discussions, and guided meditations in each session. We are eager to engage in this shared exploration and conversation with you!

Everyone is welcome! This class follows the previous series (June/July, 2023) but it’s not a requirement for this class.

Topics include:

    • Opening to loss, loosening resistance
    • Practicing with pain and suffering
    • Making a personal end-of-life plan
    • Mindful grieving, acceptance, and resilience

We will be exploring these topics with instructions from a variety of teachers, including Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche.

Your co-hosts for this series are Dana Fulmer and Rosemary Bakker, who are both longtime Buddhist practitioners, members of Nalandhabodhi New York, and formal students of Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche.

When we truly know that with every ending, there is also renewal, we begin to relax. Our minds become open to the process of change. We feel we can actually touch reality and are no longer afraid of death. We can learn to live well and fully now, with the understanding that death is not something apart from life.
—Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche
