For A Conscious End of Life

"So little is known in the West about end of life. People are only now becoming aware that there are special processes and arrangements that need to be made for an individual at the end of life. The individual who is in the process of passing away is energetically returning to their source, literally reabsorbed into his or her original being. This process can go on for a significant amount of time before that individual passes away. And during that time the individual needs a very different kind of care, in order for that process to go smoothly."

Domo Geshe Rinpoche

GRAND TRANSITIONS INSTITUTE offers a dynamic Conscious End-of-Life Training Program featuring a fresh approach to end-of-life care under the direction of Domo Geshe Rinpoche, a western reincarnate lama in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Although key elements of these original teachings are based on ancient Buddhist principles, this unique program is open to and appropriate for hospice professionals, volunteers, and others—regardless of their personal spiritual orientation.

GRAND TRANSITIONS HOSPICE will provide a space for Buddhists and others who are at the end of their lives and searching for a place of refuge, with specially trained volunteers in a gentle, spiritual setting.

Training Program for Volunteers

Presented in sequential modules, four levels of training are designed to engage students in a process of exploration and discovery that both enhances their end-of-life care-giving skills and prepares them for their own end of life.
