    Opening to Suffering

    As long as there is suffering on the planet in any form we will feel the collective pain of others and of all creatures. Imagining that suffering permanently leaves as a result of awakening is false. Perhaps in the beginning there is the experience of not being the sufferer (which is liberating), but as realization deepens, a starker truth emerges: that life in its inclusion of opposites is more poignantly felt as resistance falls away.

    The more we deepen, the greater our capacity grows to remain present to pain and suffering, and we begin to see that moving away from suffering is a denial of life and perhaps our own current reality.

    Together we will explore how to remain open and available to the pain of life while maintaining inner balance.
