Hojin Sensei talks about grief as a process, and what it means to practice good grief. She brings in teachings from the Dhammapada, the Therigatha, and the Hidden Lamp. She invites everyone into the possibility of fully and freely experiencing our grief, letting it move through us and crack us open.
