Saying Goodbye to Our Spiritual Teachers:
How to Process and Prepare for their Passing
with Ven. Thubten Chodron
Wednesdays, May 4 & 11, 4-5:30 pm Pacific Time
Many of us derive great inspiration and comfort from our spiritual teachers. We feel a deep heart connection regardless of distance and rely on their advice to guide us in the daily and long-term aspects of our lives.
Yet as Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh recently reminded people all over the world, death is an inevitable part of conditioned life. Given this reality, how might we best relate to our teachers while they are still alive, and how might we cope with the emotional grief, deep sense of loss, and abandonment that may come with their passing?
In this two-session series, Venerable Thubten Chodron draws from her deep practice, scholarship, and lived experience to help us prepare for this important passage in our spiritual life.
