    • In this section, we share powerful teachings on impermanence, change and transformation, death, rhythms and flow, suffering and surrender.
    • To help you to use this material effectively within the confines of a typical class length, we have created distinctions between these topics so that you can focus on developing a strong and clear message.
    • In reality, of course, they are all intertwined. (Impermanence and death, for example, can be covered in one teaching. Or, if we tease them apart, impermanence can take the discussion toward change and transformation and Shiva. The topic of death can focus on our tendency to deny the naturalness of aging and death, on actual preparation to die and on practices that access the mystery beyond the impermanence of this world.)
