Life transitions, whether related to faith or ways of construing existence or interpersonal relationships, can seem like utter crises when they first arise. A new way of seeing often does not arise until the prior one has dissolved. This discussion considers such events from the perspective of Buddhist dharma, including the fundamental nature of change, self identification and construction, and the unexpected value of not knowing.
"Turning Toward Suffering" is the first in a series of dharma talks from the Virtual Refuge Sangha FB group. The talk given April 29, 2012 by Sean Lindsay includes discussion with Stacey Killpack, Kim Sika, and Greg Woodhouse. If you're interested in joining us online for further discussion, please friend Sean Lindsay on Facebook, and he'll add you to the group.
