Tending to the Wound: Working with Grief and Finding Joy During Difficult Times

Updated: Aug 30, 2022

"A Free Live Online Session for BIPOC with Lama Rod Owens Tuesday, June 21st 2022 from 7:00-8:00pm ET

As BIPOC, we’re all going through it right now.

In this online talk, Buddhist teacher Lama Rod Owens will share his own experiences of working with intergenerational trauma and discuss how we can develop a relationship with our heartbrokenness and anger in ways that are embodied, nondestructive, and deeply healing for ourselves and our communities."

Focusing on the good has been a brilliant and necessary survival strategy that many CHamoru people know well. As humans, we are no stranger to grief and resilience. How did your family make it through the storms of life? How do you know when there's capacity to give attention to what's not all good so hurts can truly heal and not be the burden for the next generation? Intergenerational healing isn't about lingering in the past but considers the liberatory benefits for the future and invites potential to experience joy now.

Honesty and attentiveness is embedded in Inafa'maolek.

Meditation has been helpful to know and deepen connection with self/ancestry. Thankful for Lama Rod Owens making his teaching freely available for Black, Indigenous, People of Color.
