Metta Date: Opening to Grief

Monday, October 28


1500 Market Street
San Francisco, CA 94102
How can facing grief with compassion, rather than running from it or numbing our pain, help us open to love, transformation + growth? All levels/types of grief welcome in this community sit + chat.

"Heaviness comes from hanging on tightly to emotions that were always meant to be ephemeral." - Yung Pueblo

With so much of our lives spent trying to control, resist, or avoid pain, there is something unifying and sacred about the collective surrender and acceptance death brings.

Death breaks down our egos, breaks open our hearts, forces us to acknowledge our powerlessness, and implores us to know our souls more deeply.

As death opens us, it shines a light on other wounds and deep core belief about ourselves - our guilt about not being a good enough sibling or friend or lover, our core loneliness or shame.

While grief and death take us to places we would often prefer not to go, it also provides an opportunity for integration and wholeness.

Come meditate in community to feel greater expansion, release, and opening through a traditional Tibetan meditation. Stay after meditation to share experiences in community over tea and refreshments.
