We warmly invite you to our monthly book group. We will be meeting on the third Tuesday of each month, 10:30am - 12:30pm, starting 15 August. Please join us upstairs at 158 Australia St, Newtown.

This book group will be exploring end-of-life themes, as presented in Tibetan Buddhism.

Our first book will be Facing Death and Finding Hope by Christine Longaker.

Many books have been written on the subject of death and dying over the last twenty-five years, yet none provides a comprehensive spiritual paradigm combined with practical guidance for resounding effectively and compassionately to be most common difficulties and challenges of the dying. Christine's Longaker's uncompromising and uplifting book does it all, and is based on her own personal experiences, her study and work with Sogyal Rinpoche and on the workshops she now holds all over Europe and the USA.

“Life’s final phase is too important to be left to chance. Wise guides are arising in our culture who can teach us about this crowning event. Christine Longaker brings deep wisdom to this task, and her views span all religious traditions. This is a fine, gentle, and deeply compassionate work. Highly recommended.” – Dr. Larry Dossey, author of Prayer is Good Medicine

Each session will include:

  • meditation practice

  • time to check-in with each other

  • an overview of our selected reading

  • open discussion and information sharing

Please email Rigpa Sydney sydney@rigpa.org.au to let us know if you're coming.
