There are very few certainties in this world but one thing that is certain is that we all must die. It’s not a very popular topic in much of the modern world, however, Buddha teaches that it’s an extremely valuable topic to learn about and become aware of. 

By learning to develop an awareness and acceptance of death, we start to recognise what really matters in this life. Death awareness cuts through the root of our anxieties and frustrations and makes our mind peaceful. It enables us to deeply value our life and all the experiences within it as opportunities to learn and to grow. 

On this course, we will take an introductory look at what happens when we die and what happens afterwards.  We will learn how we deepen our acceptance and awareness of death by understanding it and meditating on it. We’ll also learn how to use our awareness of death to put the joy back into our own life. 

Discover how you can: 

  • How we can develop a deep acceptance and awareness of our own mortality 
  • How to live a happier and deeply meaningful life 
  • How we can not only let go of our fear of death but actually embrace it.
