Retreat information

Western societies are adept at hiding death. It occurs behind closed doors or in “sanitized” locations like hospitals and nursing homes. Most people rarely see corpses up close or witness the process of dying. It may seem that you have lost access to the spiritual insights that a closer connection with death could bring. Developing mindfulness of your own death can protect the mind from complacency, and inspire you to practice dharma with greater energy and sincerity.

Formal death contemplation can prepare you for the inevitable event of dying, help you to let go of latent fears, stimulate profound insights into impermanence, clarify priorities, and abandon sensory attachments. Many forms of maranasati (mindfulness of death) are taught in Buddhist traditions. Most simply, you will practice remaining aware and balanced as you reflect on the fact that you will surely die. These contemplations can remove the fear of death and produce a sense of being at ease with the nature of things.
