      Dying Every Day: Meditation, Transformation, and the Bardos

      Nothing endures but change and accepting this has the potential to transform the dread of dying into joyful living. — Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, In Love with the World: A Monk’s Journey through the Bardos of Living and Dying For many Tibetans, the bardos mark the stages from death to rebirth, but they can also be understood as an inner journey of the mind, marking the “in-between” periods in our own process of becoming more fully who we truly are. When we feel threatened by change, we try to hold things in place, refusing to let old patterns die. Opening ourselves to the constant changes in everyday life helps us to let go of fear and resistance, and to experience the mind’s awakened nature. In this one-day workshop, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche will offer practical insight into impermanence, meditation, death, and transformation. His teachings will be drawn from his new book, In Love with the World: A Monk’s Journey through the Bardos of Living and Dying. The day will include periods of teaching, discussion, and short periods of meditation. This event is suitable for anyone with an interest in meditation and Tibetan Buddhism. Please see tergar.org/mingyur-rinpoches-schedule/ for additional events in June.
