Module 7: Allowing Transformation

Who Am I Now?

When identification with the small sense of self drops away, what remains is the spacious heart that is connected with all things.

Jack Kornfield
The Wise Heart: A Guide to the Universal Teachings of Buddhist Psychology

"Adapting to your loss means that you become able to function at your preloss levels. You may return to work and reengage in social activities, and eventually you will be able to speak of your loved one without sadness. You will not, however, forget them. The goal of your transformation is to be able to live with your loss and still embrace the fullness of your life. This week you will reflect on the person you are becoming and your new relationship to the world around you."
