Practical teachings for the end of life and beyond from Atishaâ€™s Seven Point Mind Training
a retreat led by Ken Holmes
Akong Rinpoche often said that of all the various Buddhist teachings helping one prepare for death, the best for the modern Western practiser are those from the Seven Points. The retreat will take people through various areas of very practical work, such as dealing with family, possessions and relationships on the outside and oneâ€™s own mind and experiences on the inside. The course will include one or maybe two simulations of a peaceful death. Particularly useful for anyone already engaged in the Seven Points process, this retreat will contains much helpful advice, reflection and practice useful for anyone. Our experience is that it not only prepares for death but awakens one to life.
Course starts in the evening of Friday 4th May and ends 16.00 hrs Monday 7th May.
