Banyen's Description: 

What happens when we die? One of the most treasured resources for understanding this essential question is the Tibetan Book of the Dead. With Embracing the Unknown, Pema Chodron delves into the teachings of this extraordinary Buddhist text—not only for what it tells us about the journey of the soul beyond this life, but also as a source of profound wisdom for navigating the uncertainty we face each day in the bardo of this life. Recorded live at Omega Institute, with her hallmark blend of insight, humor, and fearless love, Pema explores the universal mystery of life, death, and rebirth, including:

  • What is the bardo? How any state between an ending and a beginning gives us an unparalleled opportunity for transformation
  • What is rebirth? Pema takes a deeper look at this concept and how it also occurs in our moment-to-moment experience
  • Can we let go? Guidance for honoring the difficult emotions of fear, sadness, and grief with an open and curious heart
  • How can we prepare? Meditation techniques and everyday practices for befriending change, groundlessness, and the unknown.

Death isn’t just something that happens at the end, teaches Pema. Life is continually arising, dwelling, ceasing, and arising. It’s a cycle that goes on every day, and continues to go on forever. Featuring insightful Q&A sessions with a live audience.
