display description

TLC Transitional Life Care is a Vajrayana Buddhist end of life non-profit program founded in 2015. Our mission is to offer training and support to individuals and their loved ones as they journey through the dying process. We offer educational events on a variety of topics ranging from spiritual care to secular concerns, featuring both Buddhist teachers and medical professionals.

TLC hosts the "Teaching of the Masters" film series, and screens a variety of films, including Buddhist teachings, that relate to the end of life and living fully. We also offer two 'Deep Chat' support groups focused on working with the reality of impermanence in daily life. Our Founder and Director, Julie Rogers, presents the 'Transitional State Forum', a day-long interactive end of life workshop, guided by TLC's manual, 'Instructions for the Transitional State', which can be sponsored by groups both locally and out of state.

Our events are held in various locations, including:

Orgyen Dorje Den at 2244 Santa Clara Ave., Alameda, CA, 94501

Ashland Library in Ashland, Oregon
