The fear of death casts a shadow across our lives. This fear is often unconscious and causes us to live in a tentative manner. When the fear of death is brought into conscious awareness and cleared, we are able to celebrate and enjoy life fully. Moving through our desires and fears of life and death is a major doorway beyond which we find an ever-deepening awareness of our vast, eternal nature.

Description

The training of meditation over a period of years and the awakening to the state known as Samadhi is really a training to go beyond death. Samadhi is a kind of death. It’s a crossing over to the other side, a letting go of fear, a dissolving of it.

– Leslie Temple Thurston

The fear of death casts a shadow across our lives. This fear is often unconscious and causes us to live in a tentative manner. When the fear of death is brought into conscious awareness and cleared, we are able to celebrate and enjoy life fully. Moving through our desires and fears of life and death is a major doorway beyond which we find an ever-deepening awareness of our vast, eternal nature.

If there is only Essence, then who is it that dies? What is death? In this edited collection of live recordings, Leslie guides participants in a discussion about preconceived notions of death, including overcoming fears that arise, such as:

  • Fear of annihilation,
  • Fear of being trapped in a body
  • Fear of the density of the material world.

Other topics discussed include:

  • What happens at the moment of death
  • The multidimensionality of the body
  • The Essence that is the Ground of Beingness.
