Impermanence and death – two of the topics that most people in this world tend to avoid at all costs. But did you know that there are some amazing benefits hidden in these age-old reflections? By befriending impermanence & death we are actually introduced to the awesome and breathtaking power of life itself. I have been interested in how this works for most of my life. In this collection I am mostly exploring various benefits that come from getting to know your apparent “dark side”. I say “apparent”, because it’s function can be to lead you beyond the dance of duality – and that’s if you open up to light and darkness equally with wisdom.
Our Two Weekly Audio Teachings

EPISODE 151: The Benefits of Limitation
What do you think: Are there any benefits to limitation? What could they be? In this episode I am exploring the idea that something becomes valuable once it’s limited. And how does this truth actually relate to our own life?
EPISODE 152: When Death Comes
One of the most difficult times in our life is when we loose a loved one. We are then often forced to stand by helplessly, powerless in the face of impermanence. These times are humbling, to say the least, but they also point to truth, presence and love.
Blog: Presence in the Face of Death
All of us share the same direction in life. Ultimately all of us who are reading these words will pass on. When death comes into our life and takes away someone we love dearly or threatens to stop our own heart from beating we are often left feeling helpless and terrified. It is during these times that we truly see whether we have “become an island to ourselves” or not. In this article I explore the benefits of presence during some of the most challenging times that can be experienced within this human life. I really hope that it will help some of you to find some solace and relief. But more so, I hope that it will help you to deepen your spiritual practice for the benefit of yourself and others.
