Accepting Impermanence: How to work with fear and grief in the midst of a rapidly changing world.
The global pandemic Covid-19 is shifting life as we know it. Loved ones are becoming ill, people are dying, our children are home from school, most of us are confined to our homes and many people’s livelihoods are threatened.
How can the Buddhist teaching of impermanence help us to understand, process and cope with the fear and grief that arises as so many changes are happening quickly in our lives?
