The Tibetan Book of the Dead Book Club

A series of seven sessions that explored this seminal guide to the afterlife from seven different vantage points: Each week Dr. Ramon Prats, curator of the Bardo exhibition and distinguished translator of The Tibetan Book of the Dead into Spanish, engaged with an expert from a different discipline: a neuroscientist, a dream analyst, an Egyptologist etc to explore how this text, born out of one ancient culture, can be applied to our present.
