It’s with mix of sympathetic joy and profound sadness that I share the news Robert K Hall died and passed into the Grand Mystery Friday September 20 around 6 p.m. MDT. He died at home quietly and peacefully without pain nor suffering.

We were together for the his last breaths, caressing his hands, calming his mind and soothing his heart space. I had the entire night and morning to sit vigil with his body, draped with his favorite panama shirt, scarf (pictured above) and knitted cap,  lit candles, played his favorite chants, sharing fond memories, sending him loving kindness, sincere prayers and meditations guiding him toward the beacon of inner sound and milky white inner light. These were our last wishes and grateful to be together and have shared such a soft and gentle transition.

Robert’s body will be cremated Monday September 23 by Funeria del Carmen in La Paz, BCS. There will be a global meditation Monday evening (5:30 PMT; 6:30 p.m. MDT; 7:30 Mexico City time),  to wish him well and guide him on the path on this mysterious journey with the support of our local and global Sangha . A memorial meditation is planned for Sunday November 18th in Todos Santos. Location and time to be announced.

I thought one of Robert’s last dharma talks would be fitting for this occasion

“The Joy of Dying, click link: 

Letting go is not an easy process, especially how much I’m enjoying life, surrounded by so much love and people who take good care of me…I have talked at length about my experience and difficulties about the dying process…today I’d like reflect on the positive side and share my experience  about  the joy of dying, click link:

Dharma Talk Joy of dying Robert K Hall 03-18-18

Con una mezcla de compasiva dicha y profunda tristeza comparto la noticia de que Robert K Hall murió y pasó al Gran Misterio el viernes 20 de septiembre alrededor de las 6 PM. Murió tranquilo y en paz en casa sin dolor ni sufrimiento. Estuvimos juntos durante sus últimos suspiros, calmando su mente y corazón. Tuve la noche en vigilia para sentarme con su cuerpo. Encendí velas, toqué sus cánticos favoritos, compartiendo recuerdos queridos, enviándole bondad amorosa, plegarias sinceras y meditaciones guiándolo hacia el sonido y la luz interiores. Estos fueron nuestros últimos deseos, estar juntos y agradecidos de compartir tan hermosa transición.

Su cuerpo será cremado el lunes 23 de septiembre por la funeraria del Carmen en La Paz, BCS. Habrá una meditación global el lunes a las 6:30 PM MDT y podemos desearle el bien y guiarlo en su viaje con el apoyo de nuestra sangha global. Planeamos que habrá una meditación en su memoria para finales de octubre o mediados de noviembre en Todos Santos.

El lugar y la hora por determinarse aún.
Gracias por el derrame de condolencias, buenos deseos y generosas ofrendas de apoyo. En lugar de flores or regalos, por favor considera enviar una donación deducible de impuestos a the Lomi Lomi School Foundation/Lomi Psychotherapy Clinic 534 B Street Santa Rosa, CA 95401 707-579-0465 o clic, www.lomi.org para donaciones con tarjeta de crédito. 

En bondad amorosa y eterna gratitud,

Dharma Talks With Robert K. Hall – Dharma Talks and guided meditation with Robert K Hall will resume in Todos Santos at the new temporary location. We thought this Sunday (September 28th) 10-11:30 a.m. might be a good time for the community to sit together and reflect on the aftermath of Hurricane Odile. The dharma talks will be hosted at the Plaza Antigua Building (next door to Coldwell Banker Riveras’ Office), located on the corner of Calle Juarez and Topete. A special thank you to Doug, Bonny and Alexis Burns for providing the space free of charge. Any donations collected will go toward Todos Santos hurricane relief efforts. As usual, the talks will be recorded and posted on the blog site. Join us for our 13th season and we look forward to seeing you in Todos Santos. ☞ Alvaro  Colindres

We had intended to post last week’s dharma talk, “Life is Good, Life is Complicated” but the file got corrupted. For today we have a special treat for Thanksgiving weekend.

You may not know that Robert has released two spoken word CD’s. The following three tracks are from  What a Mystery. From the back jacket, “These word songs are born out of love for full living and plenty of meditation. They are dedicated to my children Genna, Allison and Aaron and–and to their children Andy, Spncer, Mikey,  Jamie, Derek and Jared
