  • Death and Rebirth, 13-15 maj – Inställd!

    12Porträtt Venerable Michael Yeshe

    Helgkurs med Venerable Michael Yeshe
    13-15 maj

    Tyvärr får vi meddela att kursen med ven. Michael behöver ställas in. Vi försöker få den flyttad till höstterminen istället.

    “Illness, suffering and death are part of
    the reality of human existence.
    It would be as foolish to pretend that we are not sick when we are,
    or that we will never die, as it would be to deny
    the possibility of ever getting well.”
    ~ His Holiness the Dalai Lama

    Most of us live in denial of death. However, it is inevitable that we experience the loss of a loved one at some stage in our lives. It is also inevitable that we ourselves experience death some day. The Buddhist teachings offer practical guidelines on how to cultivate an awareness of impermanence & death, which helps to strengthen our spiritual practice. By accepting death as part of our natural existence, we can better deal with grief when we lose a dear one, likewise it can help prepare for ones own death. In this course, Ven. Michael will introduce some meditation  techniques on the awareness of death, the actual death process and rebirth as explained in the Buddhist texts.

    “His Holiness the Dalai Lama https://www.dalailama.com/ has been publicly teaching Buddhism for decades. The Library of Wisdom and Compassion collects his presentations of every step of the path to enlightenment, compiled and coauthored by one of his chief Western disciples, the American nun Thubten Chodron https://thubtenchodron.org/

    The Buddha wanted his students to investigate, to see for themselves whether what he said were true. As a student of the Buddha, the Dalai Lama promotes the same spirit of investigation, and as the rich tradition of the Buddha makes its way into new lands and cultures, His Holiness has recognized that new approaches are needed to allow seekers in the West to experience the relevance of the liberating message in their own lives. Such an approach cannot assume listeners are free from doubt and already have faith in Buddhism’s basic tenets. The Library of Wisdom and Compassion series, therefore, starts from the universal human wish for happiness and presents the dynamic nature of the mind. This first volume also provides a wealth of reflections on Buddhist history and fundamentals, contemporary issues, and the Dalai Lama’s own personal experiences. It stands alone as an introduction to Buddhism, but it also provides a foundation for the systematic illumination of the path in the volumes to come.”


    Stephan Pende Wormland has an MA in clinical psychology and is trained in Gestalt therapy. He has studied and practiced meditation in multiple Buddhist traditions for over 30 years. Stephan was a monk in the Tibetan tradition for 11 years, spent 5 years in meditation retreats, and teaches meditation in Buddhist centers in Europe. Stephan has been teaching regularly at FFTB 3 to 5 times a year since 2008. www.stephanpende.com/
