Love, Grief, and Activism: Radical Dharma Vision of Change and Vulnerability
 
with Lama Rod Owens
 
Saturday May 18th, 2019 | 10:00am – 5:00pm
 

 

So many of us are grieving and in deep mourning for the suffering that we are perceiving in the world as well in our own situations. We do not live in a society that is comfortable with our open grieving.

Join Lama Rod Owens for a special daylong on the healing and transformative power of community-based grieving. When we combine community grieving with our deep aspirations to love, then we are able to better transform our grief into wisdom and joy.

This is a radical vision of bringing our full selves into the complexity of living.
