The aging process includes stressful difficulties for every human being. Buddhist teachings offer life-changing guidelines for dealing with this inevitable suffering and teach us the art of what Tibetans call “turning poison into medicine.”
We come to see the ways in which our own challenges deepen our empathy and sensitize us to the suffering of others. These experiences can transform us into wounded healers, people who move through the world as instruments of love, blessing, and spiritual freedom.
This uplifting process of becoming a wise, open-hearted elder is a birthright that we all share and that is much needed in today’s world. In this online gathering, there will be a talk on the webinar theme, experiential exercises, and opportunities for discussion.
