The Death Dhamma Podcast

Jan 24, 2022

What is it like to meet your perfect partner, start planning your future, and then meet impermanence? 

Justin Whitaker of Buddhistdoor Global ( shares how a loss of a relationship took him through what he calls the fog of loss. And now, years later he sees how that experience has made him more compassionate to others and led him to recognize:

  • How being open to the wisdom of others made a positive impact
  • The importance of being with your community during challenging times
  • Allowing yourself to feel your feelings is critical
  • Our Buddhist practice is meant to be experiential

Plus, a good retreat can let you really open up and give you tools to use in the real world; as long as you go with realistic expectations.
