So many of us are grieving and in deep mourning for the suffering that we are perceiving in the world as well in our own situations. We do not live in a society that is comfortable with our open grieving, which includes our tears and the very messy ways that grieving takes us. Community based grieving is healing and transformative. When we combine community grieving with community prayer, then we are able to better transform our grief into wisdom and joy. This community dharma talk offered to the Radical Dharma Boston Collective explores the practices of prayer, community grieving and open awareness meditation in dialogue with our work as activists.
