Embracing the Wounded Self - The Dharma of Real Life

A series of 8 classes with Robert Beatty starting April 25th.

One aspect of the spiritual journey is the direct realization of our vast nature that is beyond birth/death, attachment and suffering. Profound liberating experiences arise from meditation. These are not the whole story, however, for we come to the journey with an experience of self that has psychological wounds, attachment injury, trauma, loss, social conditioning and deeply held beliefs.
