Upcoming Programs by Andrew Holecek
The bardo of letting go is the first of the three bardos that are experienced as part of dying. In this part of the journey, a person is guided to weaken their exclusive identification with outer form, and strengthen their identification with the formless, which allows one to touch their deathless nature.
This is the guiding view, and all we have to do to die well. We can strengthen this view by understanding the eight phases of the outer and inner dissolutions, and their accompanying signs. These signs arise as physical and mental functions cease, signaling the advancement of death. Studying and trying to develop an understanding of what is said to happen after death will allow us better appreciate the nuances of the experience.
This two-day bardo of letting go workshop will include talks, contemplations, meditations, and videos specifically designed to prepare us. We will learn how to help ourselves – and others – in the incredible transition of death.
