How can you Heal a Broken Heart

Let us resist the efforts of fools to make of grief a pathology. For healthy mammals (like you and I) grief comes naturally: our over-brains have evolved to treasure relationships.

Buddha’s techniques could empower us to make peace with the monster of grief (though it threaten to eat us whole).

The Anapanasati Sutta could inspire us to contemplate four rhetorical questions:

FIRST “This grieving… how changing?”

SECOND “This grieving… how fading?”

THIRD “This grieving… how ceasing?”

FOURTH “Notice grief… releasing!”

Practice these four contemplations, at the top of EVERY waking hour, four rounds each, in harmony with your breathing. And within a week you could know greater peace.

Let us conclude

with a simple

call to action

In the Tibetan tradition Lamas are supported

not by monasteries but by students

as such the production of these livestreams,

blogs, and class materials is supported

by the generosity of viewers, and listeners, and readers

just like you.
