Live Streamed: Transitional Life Care: Grief in a Time of Global Pandemic: Exploring a Path of Healing w/ Lama Choyang

June 7 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Grief is not a problem to be solved, but a deep encounter with an essential experience of being human…To honor our grief, to grant it space and time in our frantic world, is to fulfill a covenant – to welcome all that is, thereby granting room for our most authentic life. Francis Weller

We are living in unprecedented times. All of us are facing the truth of uncertainty and loss as we live with the presence of COVID-19 in our world. Lama Choyang will draw from her experience as a hospice chaplain and dharma teacher to share reflections on the path of grief and healing. She invites us to consider grief not as a problem to be solved or emotion
to be transcended, but as an experience to be supported, witnessed and loved. A consciousness that includes and honors grief is of vital importance to our healing and awakening in these times. The program will include meditation and shared discussion.

Lama Choyang (Allison Rader) is a Tibetan Buddhist teacher and was a hospice chaplain for five yearswith Hospice of Humboldt. Her root teachers are Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche and his Dzogchen lineageholder, Lama Drimed Norbu. She completed seven years of retreat under Lama Drimed’s guidance and was ordained by him in 2009. Lama Choyang currently teaches dharma and offers grief counseling, spiritual mentoring and end of life support in Arcata, CA on Zoom.
