Dying As Best One Can

Nov 16 – 17

Practical teachings for the end of life from Atisha’s Seven Point Mind Training[i]

Retreat led by Ken Holmes

Of the various Buddhist teachings helping one prepare for death, the most appropriate and successful for the modern Western practiser are proving to be those from the Seven Points. Ken will take people through the various areas of very practical work, dealing with family, possessions and relationships on the outside and one’s own experience and thoughts on the inside. The course will include a simulation of a peaceful death. Although ideal for those already engaged in the Seven Points process, this retreat will contain much helpful advice, reflection and practice useful for anyone. Our experience is that it not only prepares for death but awakens one to life[ii].


[i] Point Four presents the Five Powers used in this life and has a special section for applying the Five Powers at the time of death.

[ii] Please note this is not a training in bardo (intermediate state after death) practices but one focused on what to do up to and including the moment of death.

Saturday 16th November 11am – 4.30pm

Sunday 17th November 11am – 4.30pm

Cost €35 per day (inlcudes simple vegetarian lunch – please note we cannot cater for special dietary requirements)
