Eugene Non-Residential Retreat

Non-Residential Retreat in Eugene, OR
Have No Fear: Preparing for Death Utilizing Meditation

It is the Buddhist view that the mind (including all the aspects of character that we refer to as "heart") will outlast the body. From this perspective, the way we live our lives every day will naturally result in a state of mind that accompanies us through the dying process and onward into experiences after death. 

This weekend retreat will encourage the life attitudes of loving kindness, compassion, fearlessness and mindfulness. We will also examine the nature of our fears and habits, as a way to expand our sensitivity, responsiveness and choice in every moment. On that basis, we will explore the Tibetan Buddhist teachings on the dying process, and practice meditation to prepare for our own and others' dying.
