RE-VISIONING SUFFERING

Illness, pain, loss, hardship, and tragedy are part of the human experience. They can affect us on every level—personally, communally, and collectively. “Suffering” is often thought of as a catchall term for all of these experiences. “Suffering” can also be thought of as a person’s resistant response to difficult experiences—a response that compounds difficulty.

Originally offered as a 4-week series online that included talks and dialogues with participants, these teachings will examine and challenge how you define, perceive, and organize around suffering. You will learn pointers for shifting unhelpful perceptions of suffering that consume energy. In particular, this series will focus on how identities that form around suffering—such as victim, cynic, martyr, and savior—contrast to the inherent sense of “I am.” The sense of “I am” reveals an expression of self that is not essentially oriented to resistance or identification but to the embodiment of liberating principles such as clarity, unity, and love.

Perhaps now more than ever is the time to give our attention to how we organize around suffering. By shining the light of consciousness upon our response to suffering and any ineffectual expressions of resistance to it, we can forge a new paradigm that is not so much against suffering as it is for well-being.
