"It is the fundamental right of every human being: not to be afraid of death, or of life; to die at peace, surrounded by wise, clear and tender care; and to find the ultimate happiness that can only come from understanding the nature of mind and reality.

Sogyal Rinpoche, author of “The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying”

This website is a gift for the sangha, with the aspiration that all of us have the tools to prepare well, and to be able to care for each other more deeply, with a greater level of confidence and skill.

We are currently working on the translation of the website. We will keep adding more information, and are working on making pdf’s for print out available soon.

Are you ready? is not only a website! There will be special trainings to support students, instructors, and carers worldwide starting in the autumn 2010.
