Phowa, the Buddhist Practices on Death and Dying

with Khentrul Rinpoche

Katog Yeshe Ling, Orcas Island, Washington

May 12 - 19, 2019


P’howa is the name for any kind of practice done at the time of dying. The term literally means, “to transfer the consciousness.” Khentrul Rinpoche will give teachings on a specific practice for p’howa and we will train in this practice together during the retreat. These teachings will also include detailed explanations of the Buddhist perspective of death, dying and beyond; explanations on the stages of dying itself; and some explanation on the six bardos. The retreat will alternate between formal meditation sessions and teachings.

* This practice not for people new to Buddhism. It is requested that anyone interested has already taken refuge vows and is familiar with Buddhist philosophy through having previously received some extent of teachings and has some practice experience.
