Friday Night Lecture: Transforming Sadness and Loss

Suffering loss and unwanted changes in our lives can be a difficult and painful experience. We all try to find enduring happiness, comfort, and security from those we love and experiences we enjoy, but deep down, we know that none of these can stay with us forever.  

Using Buddha’s wisdom and healing meditations, Gen Gomlam will share some powerful methods to transform feelings of sadness and loss into a special wisdom that empowers us to actually “use our own suffering” to develop real inner protection from pain and sadness that works for everyone.
