We are pleased to announce the Dying With Confidence Level I, a five day training beginning March 23, 2018 at the Bodhi Center, Bainbridge Island, Washington. Anyen Rinpoche will be traveling from his home in Denver to give this unique set of teachings. Anyen Rinpoche has been teaching westerners on the important topic of death and dying for many years and has developed this transformative series of Dying With Confidence trainings. With guidance, students have the opportunity to master all the skills necessary for a practitioner to use death as a cause for enlightenment and to help all sentient beings. Rinpoche uniquely tailors the teachings to each group. Past Level I trainings have included:
- Teachings on the four thoughts that turn the mind
- Guru Yoga
- The signs of death
- Rinpoche's personal experience assisting the dying
- Introductory wind energy or "tsa lung" practice
Tentative dates for the required Level II program will be in Fall 2018. Program will be held at the Bodhi Center.
Tentative dates for the required Level III program will be in Spring 2019. Program will be held at the Bodhi Center.
Selected students will be invited to continue training with Rinpoche in the Level IV program offered at Orgyen Khamdroling Dharma Center in Denver, Colorado.
Tuition: The Level I retreat cost is $440 per person
Preparation: Anyen Rinpoche's book, Dying with Confidence, includes Rinpoche's heart advice to support practitioners through the dying process.
