Are we aware in any real sense that we are dying?
Can we perceive the countless illusions that separate us from directly relating to our mortality? When we open into an awareness that we and all other beings are dying, a new wisdom ignites within us. We begin to sense the beauty and preciousness of each moment. Our eyes finally orient toward the essence of every being.
Without a real intimacy with death, total aliveness
is not possible. Our culture does
In The Death Series we open into becoming familiar with our essence and its radiance. It encourages and develops the skill of radiant living, NOW. The Death Series is a profound training that uncovers what has always been there.
Part 1 asks, “How do we become intimate
Part 2 begins to look at the “Gaps
“which the ordinary mind ignores.
The observation exercises in Part Two develop a clarity about WHO is habitually running our life and usurping the vital force of life. This awareness is absolutely essential for the birth of compassion and presence. These attributes determine the capacity to truly be of service in the world. We examine all that stands in our way, all the self-deceptions, self-grasping and self-cherishing, which limit the practice of compassion and presence. We enter into a powerful ALCHEMY by engaging in the art of dedicating our suffering and exchanging pain. The key to “presence” at death becomes the core topic. The core question becomes: Can we embrace death totally?
A structural language based on these elements, their own vibrational color radiance, their physiology and their psychology and wisdom aspects will be presented. At the same time, a traditional spiritual language will be used to help us enter the process as deeply as possible. For this purpose, I have chosen the Tantric Buddhist tradition of Tibet because it offers an explanation beyond our western viewpoint and incorporates the language of LIGHT. At the level of subatomic reality, quantum physics recognizes that we are, in fact, frozen light. Therefore, inviting a traditional viewpoint that holds this fact as its foundation makes our investigation particularly rich. It allows us to observe the encounter with four increasingly subtle levels of consciousness as the “Rainbow Body” spectrum.
Part 3 examines the great opportunity for liberation
in the dying process and on what terms this opportunity is offered. This
dying process is available now at every moment.
