Meditation and Trauma - An Interview with Vajradevi

By The Abhayaratna... on Thu, 2 Dec, 2021 - 11:52

In this interview, Jinavamsa asks Vajradevi if trauma surfaces, could that be the result of long term practice or is it something we are doing, or not doing in our approach? And could meditation teachers benefit from some training to recognise when people they teach are coming up against trauma and acute anxiety?

By Candradasa on Wed, 10 Dec, 2014 - 17:27
A wonderful conversation with Amitasuri who has overcome huge health difficulties to train and work as a Buddhist Chaplain in the UK. Her passion for the vocational side of chaplaincy is inspiring and infectious, and it’s moving to hear how her own situation has allowed her to be present - truly present - with people suffering greatly, and to make a difference in that way.
