Wisdom in Hardship
Racism. Pandemic. Corruption. Isolation. What breaks us can also lead us to wholeness. Join us as we explore spiritual learnings in these times of crisis and change. Paradox can be the gate through which we pass to contemplative wisdom. Difficulty can be a catalyst for enlightened action. These four recorded video sessions of teachings and spiritual practices will help you process and find new ways of being in challenging times – for you and for those you walk with.
