Compassion and Presence

When someone we care about is struggling, it’s often hard to know how to be with them. We get tempted to problem-solve, to take on their emotions, or to distance ourselves. But those things often don’t help. Teachings from Buddhist traditions offer us a profound way to be present to suffering.

Hope for the Hopeless

Who Are You?

Who are you? It’s a question with many answers: biological, psychological, spiritual, relational… Identity is a complicated thing. Join us to explore who we are and whose we are. And join us to know that you are enough.
