The Path through Life and Death: Finding Your Authentic Truth on the Spiritual Path

Retreat with Sally Kempton & Andrea Boni

Sunday, May 26 to Sunday, June 2
Thursday, May 30 to Sunday, June 2

Grand Hotel Assisi in Assisi, Italy

The great yogic sages tell us that the true test of our practice is the moment we face our own death. In the eastern traditions, death is seen as a time of powerful spiritual opportunity. If we are prepared and conscious, the illusions of our life can fall away, and we can liberate ourselves from suffering and open to the highest truth of the Self.

What does it mean to be prepared for dying? How do our karmic patterns affect our life circumstances, and how can we make our practice an antidote to our suffering by unlocking the secrets of transcending karma? Are there methods of moving beyond hte ego that we can learn and practice in meditation?

Above all, what are the most effective practices we can use right now that will not only make our lives better, but also protect us at the time of death?

In this retreat, led by Sally Kempton and Andrea Boni, we’ll look into the deep secrets of karma and the techniques and understanding that helps us move beyond our illusions about ourselves.

We’ll start by establishing the deepest possible understanding of karma and how it works. We’ll look at the connection between our spiritual practice and our karmic patterns.

We’ll discover what the sages of all great yogic traditions teach us about how to move beyond karmic obstructions.

Above all, we’ll practice with the great yogic techniques that assist us not only through our lives, but also in the moment of death—and beyond.

You’ll learn:

  • How particular karmic patterns affect all the areas of our life.
  • How inner and outer practices can transform these patterns—and which patterns can be transformed and which must be accepted.
  • The secret paths of the after-death worlds.
  • What the sages teach us about how to leave the body.
  • What it really means to let go.
  • And, much more.

We’ll work with great teachings from the Upanishads, the Tibetan Book of the Dead, and the experiences of yogis who have experienced the worlds between lifetimes.
