Grief, Loss and Healing

The experience of loss is a universal one. Buddha taught that the end of meeting is parting and the end of birth is death, and while these truths are undeniable, we usually experience deep, long-lasting pain when we lose someone we love. In this course, we will learn how to use the power of compassion to ease our pain and heal our grief; we will look at the deeper truths that are revealed by the experience of loss, and we will learn how to help the dying and deceased by making special prayers for their future well-being.
