Being with Suffering: on Loss and Change | Supported by CCSME

With change, even positive change, there is a kind of loss; with loss there is, of course, change. And, our understanding of these inevitabilities and how we respond to them, with an awareness of their interconnectedness, greatly affect the experience and quality of our lives. In this program, we will investigate, from a Buddhist perspective, ways of being with the inevitable pain of being fully human while also investigating ways of responding to the experience of pain that help or hinder the quality of our lives.
