In this book, a teacher of insight meditation offers personal testament, healing words and wise instruction to help meet the suffering that comes with catastrophic life events. Speaking openly about his own struggles with memories of childhood sexual abuse and with the HIV+ diagnosis he received in 1989, Gavin Harrison reveals how the compassionate teachings of the Buddha and the practice of meditation offer refuge and help for all who suffer from similar crises of body, heart and spirit.
Topics include: dealing with fear, anger, and self-hatred; working with difficult relationships; confronting physical pain and the fear of death; transforming the legacy of sexual abuse; the question of karma and "Why me?"; grappling with issues of faith, freedom, hope, and miracles; basic insight meditation instruction, plus guided meditations for forgiveness, compassion, and equanimity.
