Path of Compassion for the Deceased - Chanted Meditation:
We perform this practice of transference of consciousness, known in Tibetan as “powa” once a month at our center, on behalf of beings who have recently died. It is traditionally done within forty-nine days of a death. All are welcome to join, please check our calendar, and this link for more information.
