About the event

We would like to invite you to join us for our annual event Embracing Death and Dying: A Celebration

of Life Through Reflection on Death', organised by the Kagyu Samye Dzong London (KSDL) Bardo Group.

This Death & Dying Day is a place to share ideas and practical advice on death and dying.

The Bardo Group have run Death & Dying days since 2017 and this year we will have another

full programme of events with speakers from various professions talking about their experience

around death and dying.

We will have speakers from the caring profession such as doctors

and nurses as well as funeral directors and hospice chaplains, who all share their perspectives on death.

The KSDL Bardo Group will talk about how they give support at Buddhist funerals and Death Cafes.

There will be a space set aside for contemplation, as well as a coffin exhibition, and we will be lighting butter lamps

for the deceased and loved ones, with dedications and prayers in the Shrine Room to end the day.

A detailed programme of speakers will be posted closer to the event.

You are welcome to come along for all or part of the programme.

This is a free event and there is no need to book in advance. However if you wish to make

a donation on the day towards the running costs of the Centre that is always welcome.

Our Tibetan Tearoom will be open throughout the day for teas, coffee, cold drinks and light

snacks, including a hot lunch from 1pm on a first come basis.
