We often struggle to work with the trauma that is so present in our lives. We are bombarded and overwhelmed with a world that seems to be falling part. We are confronted with the concerns about our natural environment as well as social problems such as racism, poverty, war, violence, and a host of other things. We are left with a trauma that is unexamined and which affects the quality of our lives and our interpersonal interactions. How do we begin to work with this kind of trauma in our personal experience and within our sanghas with the help of our dharma practice? How can we cultivate the space, willingness, and courage to authentically show up with our woundedness within a safe space in order to heal? These are the questions explored in this dharma teaching.
