The Ebb & Flow of Existence & Non-existence
Death and impermanence are the natural ebb and flow of existence, yet there can be a tendency to look on death as a single,undesirable, end-of-life experience. Through looking at impermanence, death—and rebirth—can be recognised as a continuing experience. The process of falling to sleep, dreaming, and waking into a new day is similar to the process of falling into death, the intermediate bardo experience, and awakening into a new lifetime. Through learning to gain lucidity in dreaming and awareness through sleep, this time becomes available for practice, and death loses its fear.
Ngakma Nor’dzin and Ngakpa ’ö-Dzin will teach the method of dream yoga, and discuss the
nine bardos of the Aro gTér Lineage.
Refreshments are provided for the morning tea break. Please bring a packed lunch.
A donation of £25 is requested for the day of teachings.

“Instantaneous ordinariness’ is the fruit of the gYo-wa bardo. Instantaneous ordinariness is the moment when continuity is destroyed. As soon as continuity is destroyed, continuity appears again as the continuous moment of ‘Great Time’. One senses continuity again, but ‘that which is continuous’ is empty. One arrives at the non-dual point of realising the one taste of continuity and discontinuity. This is the essence of the tha-mal-gyi-shé-pa bardo: simply noticing death – and being born as the next moment.” Ngak’chang Rinpoche
