Letting Grow


Sep 30, 2020

Tibetan teachings on the death process are profoundly inspiring.  Yes, it’s a sad and possibly scary time of letting go of our ordinary sense of self – but what really dies is everything except our true self, which gets to shine through clearly into our experience.  Today’s teaching episode centers on Tibetan teachings about the death process, but we’ll also discuss why it’s difficult to let go into transitions and how we can prepare daily.

In the episode, I mention a couple of books and an important concept, so here are links:

  • William Bridges, Transitions: Making Sense of Life’s Changes
  • Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, Mind Beyond Death
  • Bruce Feiler, Life is in the Transitions

And you can read more about Max Weber’s concept of disenchantment here.
