Practicing to Suffer Better

This talk was given in the weekly online Dharma practice gathering with Rebecca Li on April 24, 2020.  Rebecca encouraged practitioners to cultivate clear awareness of one’s experience of suffering so that one can use the practice to mitigate the impulse to inflict  additional suffering on oneself and others.  To do so, we practice not being afraid of our fear and suffering.  Practicing this way, we also learn to tread the Bodhisattva Path by not turning away from the suffering of the world.
