Anyen Rinpoche has been teaching westerners on the important topic of death and dying for many years and has developed this transformative series of Dying With Confidence trainings. With guidance, students have the opportunity to master all the skills necessary for a practitioner to use death as a cause for enlightenment and to help all sentient beings.

Phowa Retreat (No Pre-requisite):
Intensive phowa practice retreat open to previously trained students and to those interested in learning about phowa and the Dying with Confidence Training Program.
