    For the 6th year running, we welcome the renowned author of such books as Preparing to Die: Practical Advice and Spiritual Wisdom from the Tibetan Buddhist Tradition — teacher and authority on lucid dreaming, dream yoga, and meditation — Andrew Holecek.

    This weekend will explore the Bardo Principle and its immediate application in our daily lives. By discovering the small bardos now we will be preparing for the big one at the end of life.

    Through talks, meditations, and discussion you will learn:

    • That bardos are everywhere, and why discovering this instills freedom.
    • How the small bardos of daily life prepare for the big one at the end of life.
    • Why these teachings ironically bring you more fully into life.
    • How the bardo teachings point out the illusory nature of death — the death of death.
    • Why these teachings are among the greatest gifts to humanity.
    • The meditations that directly prepare you for death.

    “From Andrew Holecek’s first words, you know you can trust him. He writes from deeply felt experience as well as a masterful grasp of the vast dharma.”

    Irini Rockwell
    author of The Five Wisdom Energies
