In Love With the World

Join us for a special evening with Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche. Rinpoche will be discussing his latest book In Love With The World: A Monk’s Journey Through the Bardos of Living and Dying (Spiegel & Grau, on sale May 7, 2019). The book is a rare and intimate account of a world renowned Buddhist monk’s near-death experience and the life-changing wisdom he gained from it.

In this powerful and unusually candid memoir of learning to face fear, the Buddhist master reveals the invaluable lessons he learned from his near-death experience and guides readers through the meditation practices that sustained him. In Love With the World illuminates how we can all train our minds and transform our fears and the small deaths we face each day into joyful living. Though Rinpoche’s story has the feel of a spiritual classic, it is an urgent and timely message for readers in today’s challenging world.

Dying Every Day

In this one-day workshop, Mingyur Rinpoche will offer practical insights into impermanence, meditation, death, and transformation. His teachings will be drawn from his new book In Love with the World: A Monk’s Journey through the Bardos of Living and Dying. The day will include periods of teaching, discussion, and short periods of meditation. This event is suitable for anyone with an interest in meditation and Tibetan Buddhism.
