WELCOME TO TLC!
Caring for End of Life Transitions in the Buddhist Tradition
“How many years have we struggled trying to establish the dharma, trying to teach, trying to learn? This program, TLC Transitional Life Care, is really trying to do that. It is for the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha; it is for the benefit of all beings. I think it’s a good idea, help everybody open their eyes! This program is for the Three Jewels – it is wonderful. I say, thank you.”
Spiritual Care and Support
TLC Transitional Life Care provides informal support through the process of dying to individuals, families, caregivers, friends, and the community. We present educational programs and videos, workshops, and host support talk groups. TLC also offers a concise Buddhist end-of-life manual, 'Instructions for the Transitional State' and a large variety of resources found on this website for those who wish to acknowledge and prepare for their end of life transition, all from a Vajrayana Buddhist perspective. All of our activities are motivated to support this.
