Dying With Confidence Training Program:  Level I
Tibet House NYC
June 15-19, 2017

We are pleased to announce the Dying With Confidence Level I, a 5-day training, begins June 15th at Tibet House New York. Anyen Rinpoche will be traveling from his home in Denver to give this unique set of teachings. Anyen Rinpoche has been teaching westerners on the important topic of death and dying for many years and has developed this transformative series of Dying With Confidence trainings. With guidance, students have the opportunity to master all the skills necessary for a practitioner to use death as a cause for enlightenment and to help all sentient beings.

Rinpoche uniquely tailors the teachings to each group. Past Level I trainings have included:

  • – Teachings on the four thoughts that turn the mind
    – Bodhicitta
    – Guru Yoga
    – The signs of death
    – Rinpoche’s personal experience assisting the dying
    – Phowa
    – Introductory wind energy or “tsa lung” practice
