Living with Loss: Grief, Consolation and Communion
with Guy Newland
This online course addresses 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?
