Both traditional Tibetan medicine and Buddhism recognize death as part of the natural lifecycle rather than something suddenly confronted in a state of despair. This workshop covers the core Tibetan concepts of how to understand the nature of death and dying, and examines both the distant and imminent signs of death based on traditional Tibetan medicine and on Buddhist scholarly viewpoints. We will consider the stages of dying of the physical body, and of the “mind/body” as it enters the intermediate bar-do stage as a preparation for rebirth.
