The Buddha said, “that which is born, must die”. Death is inevitable. Death is the most certain event that will occur in our lives. Whether death will be the crowning glory of your life or an event to be lamented, will depend on how well you are prepared to meet death when it arrives.
You might be thinking that death is a finality, and the manner in which one dies does not matter. This is grave ignorance. Death is a transition, from one plane of existence to another. And the way one dies will determine the next course of events, which can be an elevated state of existence, or rather mediocre.
The workshop explains the processes one goes through as they approach the moment of death, what happens to the body and soul as the person is dying, and the stages the soul passes through once it has left the body.
This course offers precise instructions for you to identify and recognize the process of death, to eliminate misunderstandings and fears, and to learn yogic methods to prepare for death so that you may embrace death wisely, as well as know-how to support someone else through this process.
Take note, that this is an intensive workshop with plenty of lectures, keeping with the oral tradition of spiritual transmissions. The lectures will be complemented with different styles of meditations, and sessions of Q & A.
What you will learn:
- You will gain deep spiritual understanding and clarity about this great transition, thus eliminating misunderstandings & fears
- The intimate & spiritual relationship between the phenomena of life & death
- The process of death: the premonition, recognizing the signs of death, both objectively & subjectively
- The samsaric imprisonment due to the existence of karma, attachments, & desires
- The study of the subtle planes of the universe, forms of existence & locations in the after-life
- The do’s & don’ts when confronted with death, both for yourself, and your dear ones. And the metaphysical principles on which these practices are based
- The Tibetan Phowa technique – the transferring of the Consciousness
- Breathing technology
- Secret tantric meditations
- Special Hatha yoga practices
How you will benefit:
- You will be empowered and well prepared to greet the grand conclusion of your life with deep peace, awareness, and Grace.

- You will live more mindfully with a moment-to-moment awareness, and find the much-coveted contentment, peace and harmony within yourself. Your life will be a masterpiece of exhilaration, happiness and joy.

- You will develop the timeless virtues of compassion, love, right knowledge, wisdom, clarity, and non-attachment, living in harmony with the universal principles, ideals, and higher integrity.
"When my grandfather was approaching his 100th birthday, I knew I wanted to be prepared for his passing and took the workshop. And when I did, I was fascinated beyond words: It was profound and I gained a lot of courage and strength to deal with death. Because although dying is a central part of the human experience, it’s societies last taboo and hardly ever addressed. So, when the time of my grandfather’s death came, I could operate from a place of love instead of fear and sadness and assist him in his process of leaving this life. It was beautiful and deeply transformative. I am beyond grateful for Muktananda´s guidance, wisdom and humour in teaching about death and dying. I realized that facing death is deepening my experience of life, even as a young person." Pia from Austria.

We are very happy to provide video recordings for most of our workshops, but we strongly recommend attending them LIVE and using the videos as support. As the method used for the recordings is Zoom, we don’t guarantee high-quality performance. Recordings are available for one week after the workshop has finished.
