Lama Karma Chotso Will Be Teaching in the Bahamas

Please register for this event at: SivanandaBahamas.org


Greetings from the Sivananda Ashram in the Bahamas! In the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian, our prayers are with the people of the Bahamas and the islands of Abaco and Grand Bahama, which suffered the brunt of that massive weather event.

The ashram staff are safe and the buildings and grounds have sustained no damage. Thankfully, New Providence, Nassau, and Paradise Island were not in the direct path of the storm, and hurricane preparation and evacuation protocols were in place. For more information on how to help the people on our sister islands, please read here.

 Our message to potential guests says that the best way to contribute to the Bahamas and support the ashram’s well-being right now is to make their plans to visit. This is the perfect time to be promoting your program!



ON DEATH AND DYING

A two weekend seminar taught by Lama Karma Chotso.

What is death? What does the mind experience when dying? How does one assist another person in their transition from this life? How do we prepare for our own death?

These and other questions on death and dying will be discussed in this seminar. Lama Karma Chötso will teach relevant sections from books such as The Tibetan Book of the Dead (Translation of Tibetan title: The Great Liberation by Hearing in the Intermediate States), adding from her own experience as a hospice chaplain, and a practitioner of Tibetan Buddhism for the past 36 years.

The sessions will include teachings, discussions, meditations, and sessions for practicing dying.

This seminar is open to the public and recommended for anyone concerned with the above questions, who works and/or lives with the terminally ill. The Tibetan Buddhist view on death and dying can add new perspectives and practices that bring support, understanding and compassion to the last actions of this life.
