If you're prepared, life's greatest obstacle—the end of it—can transform into its greatest opportunity: spiritual awakening. With the proper view and the right meditations, you can approach death with confidence instead of dread. This retreat will help you prepare for death, both for yourself and for others, by showing you what to do—before, during, and after death—in order to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
