“How to live a joyful life and prepare for a peaceful death”

Friday, February 28, 2020: 7–9pm
Saturday, February 29, 10am–4pm, includes lunch break
Sunday, March 1, 9am-11:30am

A healthy relationship with death can also help us live a more joyful life without regrets, as we get in touch with what’s truly meaningful and let go of what’s not. Death is an inevitable part of life, but a difficult topic we often tend to avoid, or don’t know how to approach.

The Buddhist tradition encourages exploring our attitudes and feelings toward death, and has a treasure of advice and perspectives on the subject. Bringing this wisdom into our lives can help us become peaceful and courageous when facing our own death or the death of a loved one.

The weekend retreat will include guided meditations, discussions, and Q&A with Geshe Sherab.

Suggested donation: $65 for all events (no one is turned away for lack of funds, partial attendance okay)

Friday only: $15. Printed materials and suggested readings will be provided.

Geshe Thubten Sherab

Geshe Sherab was born in Nepal in 1967. At age 9, he joined Kopan Monastery and was ordained as a monk by Lama Zopa Rinpoche.​ Ten years later he transferred to Sera Je Monastery, one of the great Tibetan monastic universities remaining in the world. In 1999, he graduated with the esteemed degree of Geshe, after more than 25 years of intensive study and training in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.

Shortly after, at the request of Lama Zopa Rinpoche, Geshe Sherab began working for FPMT International Office. He then returned to Kopan Monastery to serve as director of monastic education for a few years, before moving back to the United States to become resident teacher at Thubten Norbu Ling Buddhist Center in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Geshe-la now spends half of the year in Santa Fe and the other half traveling to Buddhist centers around the world. He is also currently a member of the board of directors for FPMT.
