    Eventbrite - The Bardos in Everyday Life: Weekend Program with Andrew Holecek

    This weekend will explore the Bardo Principle and its vast application in daily life. Once we open our eyes to them, bardos are everywhere — and the spaciousness of that recognition invites liberation. By discovering the small bardos now we will be preparing for the big one at the end of life.

    The bardo teachings are among the greatest gifts to humanity, and working with them ironically brings us more fully into life — and reveals the death of death. For the awakened ones, death is an illusion, and this weekend will lead you to that awakening.

    Spiritual centers upended by scandals experience a bardo, and understanding the bardo teachings can help members negotiate the challenging journey.  

    “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
