For many of us, divorce or separation can be one of the most painful transitions of our lives. In this day together, we’ll explore how the wisdom of the Buddha can help us hold this experience as one of liberation.
Through the teachings on impermanence and equanimity, we’ll explore ways to cultivate balance. Through the teachings on anger and forgiveness, we’ll explore ways to cultivate compassion and freedom. By stepping out of the story of who did what to whom, we can allow ourselves to be with what is actually true, and remember that this is truly a path of freedom.
