Lessons on Moving Through Change, Loss, and Disruption

October 28, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm PDT


We all go through times when it feels like the ground is being pulled out from underneath us and what we relied on as steady and solid may change or even appear to vanish. Not only are loss and separation painful, but even positive changes can cause great stress. Yet life is full of change: birth, death, marriage, divorce, a new relationship, losing or starting a job, beginning a new phase in life or ending one. Change is stressful, even when it is much desired or anticipated. The unknown can feel scary and threatening.

Experienced mindfulness teacher Kaira Jewel Lingo provides accessible advice on navigating difficult times of transition by drawing on Buddhist teachings on impermanence to help us establish equanimity and resilience. Her latest book, We Were Made for These Times, dives into her work, providing essential teaching and meditation, unfolding a step-by-step process to nurture deeper freedom and stability in daily life.

In this era of global disruption-where threats to our individual, social, and planetary safety abound-life can feel overwhelming. Kaira Jewel’s work provides us with powerful ways to meet life’s challenges with wisdom, resilience, and ease. The time-honored teachings that Kaira shares help us develop presence and compassion, supporting us to release the fear, doubt, and resistance that hold us back.

Join CIIS Integrative Health Studies professor Megan Lipsett for a conversation with Kaira Jewel about her teaching and her latest book, and learn how to move through change, loss, and disruption to find both freedom and stability.

Free, suggested donation of $10.
