Death and Beyond: Buddhist and Steinerian Insights
School of Consciousness and Transformation PARA 6383 3.00
What is death? What might await us after death? Nothing? Rebirth? Liberation? We shall explore these deep questions from the twin perspectives of Rudolf Steiner and the teachings of the Buddha. In this course we will study Steiner’s lectures on the journey of the soul after death, and core Buddhist teachings on the death process and beyond. Integral to this course will be experiential exercises drawn from Steiner’s lectures and the Tibetan Book of the Dead. Topics will include karma and rebirth, the Bardo, dream yoga, and Nirvana.
