“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.”
TLC Transitional Life Care provides informal, additional support to those approaching death and through the process of dying, and to their families and caregivers. We also offer care to those who’ve lost someone and to all who wish to acknowledge and prepare for their end of life transition, all from a Buddhist perspective. Through training, practice, and assistance, we offer spiritual affirmation and encouragement grounded in the traditional customs and rituals based in Vajrayana Buddhism. We acknowledge that the end of life is a profound opportunity for spiritual understanding, practice and accomplishment, and all of our activities are motivated to support this. This includes:
· Ongoing educational training programs
· End of life workshops for groups
· ‘Deep Chat’ support “talk” groups
· Bedside companionship and support
· End of life preparation
· Bereavement support
· Care of the body at death
· Assistance with cremations
· Coordination of memorial services
· Teachings of the Masters Film Series
