Dying with Confidence
A public talk with Anyen Rinpoche
May 6th 2015, 2:00-4:00pm
With great practicality and wisdom, Anyen Rinpoche, a Tibetan Buddhist master, helps us look at death —our own and others—as an opportunity for development and ease. He has guided hundreds of people through their dying and knows what practices prepare us to die confidently. Whether or not you are acquainted with Buddhism, or have even thought about your death in detail, Rinpoche’s teachings will help you.
In this presentation, Anyen Rinpoche will cover such topics as the signs and stages of dying, how to help friends and family members carry out their wishes in the dying process, and how to begin to think about your own death. He will answer questions about dying and about getting spiritual help in supporting ourselves and our loved ones.

Making the Most of the Time We Have:
Tibetan Mind Training
with Vajrayana Master Anyen Rinpoche
May 6th 2015, 7:30-9:00pm
Most of us fill our daily lives with mundane activities, acting like we will live forever. The truth is we won't. Our time is limited and we have no time to waste.
Join Anyen Rinpoche as he gives an introduction to Lojong teachings, which are a set of antidotes to the mental habits that cause us suffering. These teachings help us connect with the world in an unconditionally positive way while encouraging us to take full responsibility for our experience in it. This practical teaching can be used every day in our lives, especially with those situations that challenge us the most!

Wind energy training is a foundational aspect of Yantra Yoga - one of the oldest recorded systems of yoga in the world. This system of positions, movements, conscious breathing and contemplation all work together to help purify personal energy in the body and mind.
Yantra Yoga is the formal name of a contemplative tradition of working with the body’s energetic channels, “wind energies” (which includes the breath), and vital essences. The root of Yantra Yoga is working with the breath, and all great yogis learn the basic breathing techniques of Yantra Yoga as part of their spiritual mastery.
Anyen Rinpoche completed traditional training in Yantra Yoga in Tibet. He studied for many years with Tsunpo Dorlo Rinpoche, a great Yantra Yoga master . Dorlo Rinpoche was considered the highest authority on the practices of the channels, energies and essences in all of Tibet until his recent passing in 2004. Lama Chatrel Sangye Dorje said that regarding these teachings, there was no greater master in modern times.
Anyen Rinpoche began formally teaching on wind energy training in 2011. His most recent book, “The Tibetan Yoga of Breath,” is the basis for a new series of teachings focused on wind energy training and Yantra Yoga.
