Preparing to Let go: A retreat on Dying Well

“We cannot hope to die peacefully if our lives have been full of violence, or if our minds have mostly been agitated by emotions like anger, attachment, or fear. So if we wish to die well, we must learn how to live well. Hoping for a peaceful death, we must cultivate peace in our mind, and in our way of life.” His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama.

Online Retreat Second Saturday of December, January, February and March, 10AM-4PM, with breaks for lunch and tea. Resources for this retreat can be found here. Participation requires prior registration in order to make preparations for the retreat.
