We are alive therefore we will die. This is the simplest, most obvious truth. Contemplating our own mortality leads to a profoundly worry-free and happy life. By cutting through our worldly concerns, the meditation on death quickly eliminates all our ordinary worries and anxieties.

On this day course Kelsang Shechog will explain the meditation on death and how it destroys our desirous attachment, thereby leading us to an enjoyable and successful spiritual life.

Following the day course those who wish to can enjoy a day of guided retreat with Kelsang Shechog. Take the meditation on death deeper into your heart, allowing it to leave a powerful impression on your mind and your life. This day retreat will be held in silence (silence will begin after everyone has arrived).

The day course and retreat are suitable for beginners as well as those who already have some meditation experience. Everyone is welcome.
