Death in the Mirror of Life -
The Bardos - with Philippe Cornu.
The bardos, or the intermediate states that manifests in death, sleep, dreams and meditation, are crucial moments in which our mind faces radical transformation. The teachings on the Bardos describe these remarkable states, as well as the practices that make it possible to discover our Buddha nature that will ultimately set us free.
The bardo at the moment of death, which presents itself as a series of dissolutions, leads to the fundamental clear light, the essence of all living beings. Vajrayana and Dzogchen both point to this crucial moment of death as being the mirror of what we have accomplished in our life.
During this weekend held by Philippe Cornu, we will do guided meditations on this approach to life and death, and explore this adventure of our consciousness, so we can better understand the benefit of the Bardo practices.
