Practising Meditation in Hard Times - Open House Talk


When we are caught in the darker and more intense emotions and our life seems most difficult, meditation might feel like the last thing we want to do. 


However if we can learn to stay compassionately present with these difficult feelings and not escape into distraction, we can discover a transformative path to inner freedom.
