Talk and Book Signing!

with Andrew Holecek
November 3 / 11:00 AM - November 3 / 12:30 PM

You are warmly invited to hear a talk from 11:00am - 12:30pm by our own Shambhala lama, Andrew Holecek, an authority on death and dying. A reception and book signing will follow the lecture!

Andrew will introduce us to his new book: Preparing to Die: Practical Advice and Spiritual Wisdom from the Tibetan Buddhist Tradition. Andrew explains that death is one of the most precious experiences in life. Yet it remains a dreaded event. We dread it because we don’t know about it. We don’t look forward to death because we don’t know what to look forward to. He wrote this book to help us prepare - to illuminate the darkness of death and to give us something to look forward to. His vision is to provide a comprehensive reference manual, an encyclopedia of death.
