This recorded live webcast is Part 6 of Living with Joy, Dying in Peace, a six-part series with Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche.

The time may come when you feel called to support a friend or loved one through the struggles of aging, sickness, and death. According to the Tibetan traditions, to be of true service a helper needs three beneficial qualities: openness, awareness, and warmth. Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche explains how to:

  • Open yourself more fully to your friend or loved one without being driven by fears or expectations.
  • Connect more fully with the person, rather than disengaging due to stress, emotion, or compassion fatigue.
  • Host the other person in the warmth of loving-kindness, to nurture a genuine sense of acceptance, comfort, protection, and trust.
