Navigating Grief and Loss
with Kimberly Brown
Tue Feb 14, 7–8:30pm EST ONLINE
In her new book Navigating Grief and Loss: 25 Buddhist Practices to Keep your Heart Open to Yourself and Others, meditation teacher Kimberly Brown weaves together poignant personal stories of loss with traditional mindfulness and lovingkindness practices. Her approach to the changes in life—the death of a parent, getting fired from your job, or an unexpected divorce—empowers you to engage with and befriend your sadness, pain, and mourning, and discover the true openness and peace available within us all, no matter what the circumstances.
At this event, Kimberly will read from her book, share her own experiences of loss, and lead brief mediations to help anyone suffering with loss—of any kind—access and benefit from their own beautiful qualities of love, compassion, and wisdom.
This program is appropriate for and open to anyone who is experiencing mourning and grief, and anyone who knows someone struggling to deal with loss and death. No experience with meditation or Buddhism is necessary and all are welcome.
