The past two years of global pandemic, war, and financial hardship have posed unique challenges to so many people. We have all experienced loss, grief, and trauma in varying degrees.
For some of us, these years have brought back difficult memories of previous losses, or stalled our healing process from difficulties we had experienced before.
Buddhist wisdom offers timeless guidance for healing but can sometimes feel inadequate in the face of such intense experiences and emotions. We may still feel overwhelmed and unhappy with ourselves as we suffer. What teachings from psychology and Buddhist wisdom can support us on the long and winding journey through grief? How can we learn to stay present with ourselves as we experience the deep pain of loss and longing?
Join clinical psychologist Sameet Kumar, Ph.D. on May 4, 11 and 18 for a special three-part workshop on integrating Buddhist teachings and practices to help you navigate the inner journey of grief in these challenging times.
This is a donation-based workshop. The suggested donation is $30.
