Sometimes we go through periods of life when we feel we have lost ourselves, when our life has changed so radically that we no longer know who we are or what we are to do. There could have been the loss of a loved one, an illness or accident that affected our body, a major move, the loss of a dream we had held, the loss of a job or of our ability to continue our work. It could have been a series of losses. Life has said “No” to our wishes, our plans. We may feel powerless, angry, numb, sad or confused. We may have no words to express what is happening to us. The poet Rumi says: “Gone, inner and outer, No moon, no ground, no sky.” What do we do? Where do we go? How can we say “Yes” to life when life says “No” to what we want? These are questions we will explore through shared reflection and dialogue.
