Navigating Death and Loss Through Practice

October 24, 2023 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm PDT

No one is exempt from loss and pain in life, as we know through the First Noble Truth of Buddhism. But how can our practice actually support our working through the inevitable loss and pain that is part of a human life? Tina will talk about this tender and difficult topic, including her own personal experiences, sharing examples such as:

  • health challenges
  • death of loved ones
  • facing our own death
  • loss of relationships
  • financial setbacks
  • job / career loss
  • loss from climate change and other sociological upheaval

Our Buddhist practice and the principles of Buddhism can be tremendous supports to help us navigate these situations, in order to move through them with authenticity, strength, vulnerability, and ultimately healing. Tina will discuss how to rely on our practice as a refuge during these trying times that every human faces—even the Buddha.

Tina Rasmussen is a meditation teacher who leads retreats and offers spiritual guidance and mentoring to practitioners worldwide. Her mission as a teacher is to foster awakening and its embodiment in worldly life, through the application of authentic, rigorous Buddhist and modern practices.

Tina learned to meditate in 1976, at age 13. In 2003, after many years of practice in Buddhist and modern non-dual traditions, she undertook an intensive year-long solo retreat during which a profound awakening to Reality occurred. In 2005, Tina attended a retreat with Burmese meditation master Ven. Pa Auk Sayadaw, who ordained her as a Buddhist nun. During the retreat, Tina became the first Western woman to complete the entire Samatha path in this lineage. Tina was authorized to teach by Ven. Pa Auk Sayadaw of Burma. Tina also took refuge with Tsoknyi Rinpoche, a Tibetan Dzogchen teacher, and was initiated into the Nyingma lineage.
