Letting Grow

Mar 12, 2021

This show has focused so far on Tibetan teachings on death and rebirth, but there are also Western authors who have been thinking and writing about transitions and have their own model to offer. In this episode I'll share four of my Western favorites, their three-stage model of transitions, and some of the recent research on how people go through transitions (in this lifetime). At the end of the day, these authors make a great conversation partner, so to speak, with Tibetan teachings on literal rebirth.

Books mentioned in this episode: Arnold van Gennep, Rites of Passage; Victor Turner, The Ritual Process; William Bridges: Transitions: Making Sense of Life's Changes; Bruce Feiler: Life Is in the Transitions.
