Speaker: Pamela Gayle White
Title: “Meditating on Impermanence and Loss with an Open Heart"
Location: Rotunda Multipurpose Room 
 
Join Pamela Gayle White for a session dedicated to opening the heart to impermanence, sadness, and loss. Together we will explore how meditation can transform our relationship to life’s sorrowful experiences and help us grow. The session will include a talk, meditation, and discussion. Pamela will lead us through two accessible, non-denominational contemplation/meditation methods that can be integrated into your practice.

Pamela trained and has most recently served as an interfaith hospital and hospice chaplain in Philadelphia and Virginia. She completed her one-year chaplain residency at UVA hospital in palliative care and inpatient oncology.  A Buddhist practitioner since the mid-80s, Pamela teaches meditation and Buddhist philosophy in Europe and the Americas, primarily within the Bodhi Path network. She has worked closely with many Buddhist masters as an interpreter and to translate practice texts and commentaries from Tibetan. She also writes and edits; she is a contributing editor at Tricycle, the Buddhist Review, where she currently has a column on aging and dying.
 
Please arrive early—room size will dictate class capacity. This session will include guided movement exercises so please wear comfortable attire.
