No Regrets, No Fear: Welcoming Death in Order to Make the Most of the Life You’ve Been Given

What would be possible in your life if you had absolutely no fear of dying? How might you live with less fear overall, and more joy? How might your life change?

Join Tibetan Buddhist teacher and end of life expert Andrew Holecek as he walks you through a powerful, and life-changing, one-hour ILP coaching session to better understand death and liberate you from the false identity that keeps you trapped in the fear that your true self is anything other than timeless.

The thought of death can be terrifying for people, provoking anxiety, fear of the unknown, feelings of vulnerability and can even enhance group loyalty and nationalism. But research has shown that mindfulness practice can mitigate and even eliminate death anxiety*.

“The body and mind are only symptoms of ignorance, of misapprehension. Behave as if you were pure awareness, bodiless and mindless, spaceless and timeless, beyond ‘where’ and ‘when’ and ‘how’. Make your mind and body express the real which is all and beyond all.”Nisargadatta Maharaj

How It Works

Death and Dying is designed to deepen your understanding of your attachment to the various identities–starting with your body and going inward from there–that prevent you from encountering the idea of death with the equanimity that comes from being awake to your deeper self.

In this focused and powerful 1-hour coaching session with Andrew you will learn how to…

  • More fully appreciate and honor your body while also beginning to differentiate from exclusive identification with it
  • Move beyond attachment to all the various outward forms in your life that will inevitably pass on at death
  • Become familiar with your “mental body”–thoughts, emotions, hopes, dreams etc.–that is where people often believe their real identity lies
  • Learn how to transition your awareness from the fully-formed outer body to the formless inner body
  • Achieve access to the deepest, timeless, “spirit body” that is pure awareness beyond form and dissolution

And much, much more!
