The Bardos in Everyday Life class has been totally updated to help people deal with the virus situation. The bardo teachings are especially applicable at this time, because we are in one. The rug of our conventional reality has been pulled out from under our feat. How we react to that groundlessness and uncertainty is up to us, but the bardo teachings can really help in this challenging time. New teachings and practices designed for this difficult time will be offered, allowing us to better bring what’s happening to our path.
This course will explore the bardo principle and its vast application in daily life. Once we open our eyes to these principles, we see bardos are everywhere—and the spaciousness of that recognition invites liberation. By discovering the small bardos now, we will be preparing for the big one at the end of life.

Interesting link showing images of Naga Kanya. I am partial to this feminine representation of serpent energy. The ouroboros (plural form?) figures above all seem very masculine somehow.
I explored the Serpentine Sanctum website very rapidly and it looks these folks offer cacao rituals and tea and whatnot in the presence of healing serpents! Snake healing anyone?!
The Naga Goddess is alive and well in Nepal. I have seen people avoid “polluting” streams and rivers where they live. Some apparently also live in trees.
