It's never too late to heal the past. We can own and transform even the most difficult life situations, including death and our own seemingly fatal mistakes. Coming to terms with the loss of a loved one is a major life challenge. Author and lifelong practitioner of Tibetan Buddhism, Arnaud Maitland, reveals how grief over the loss of his mother deepened his ability to apply the Buddhist teachings in his own life. Maitland journeys through turbulent emotions, feelings of helplessness, guilt, anger, confusion, despair and fear, while at the same time exploring the larger framework of Buddhist teachings on impermanence, suffering and the development of wisdom and compassion. (hosted by Michael Toms)
