Living with Loss: Grief, Consolation and Communion
with Guy Newland
We will work with issues such as: How do we go on when we lose someone whom we love more than life itself? What did the Buddha teach about working with grief? How can we help ourselves, or help others, in the face of terrible loss?
Guy Newland will open the weekend with a public talk on Friday, May 19th at the Birmingham Unitarian Church in Bloomfield Hills and continue in depth on Saturday and Sunday, May 20 and 21 at the Jewel Heart Ann Arbor Tibetan Buddhist Learning Center in Ann Arbor. Join us onsite and/or online!
Guy Newland is Professor of Religion and Chair of the Department of Philosophy and Religion at Central Michigan University, where he has taught since 1988. He has authored, edited, and translated several books on Tibetan Buddhism, including the three-volume translation of The Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment and Introduction to Emptiness. Since the loss of his wife Valerie Stephens in 2013, he has expanded his teachings, given to universities and Dharma centers, which include topics on death, dying, and grief. He lives in Mount Pleasant, MI.
