The Labyrinth Readers Society was founded in 1974 to maintain the craft of guiding the individual through the state of Transit between death and rebirth. You may have heard of the Tibetan Book of the Dead and Dying and the Tibetan tradition of guiding those who have passed though the bardo.

The purpose of a reader is to help the individual make the transit through the dying process.The Labyrinth Readers Society works with the contemporary 20th Century text of the American Book of the Dead by E.J. Gold.
A Labyrinth Reader is a person trained in the age-old tradition of guiding the Being through the between lives state-- a practice found in every culture throughout the world; as exemplified by The Tibetan Book of the Dead, The American Book of the Dead, The Egyptian Book of the Dead, and the Calendar of Shepherds. The tradition is an oral tradition,(meaning that the instructions are read aloud), which gives specific instructions at specific intervals with the aim of guiding the individual through transit or, if possible from the moment of death into Liberation.
