At the Heart of All Our Sorrows

At the Heart of All Our Sorrows

With Francis Weller  •  September 23, 2023 10–11:30am PDT

A live online conversation facilitated by Zaya & Maurizio Benazzo

Underneath much of our grief lies a chronic sense of emptiness, a persistent ache, that often lingers unacknowledged. This emptiness is laid down in our bodies as a feeling of lack which, in turn, is expressed as a pervasive and gnawing hunger for more. Always more. How else can we account for the insatiable appetite we have in modern society to consume, to possess, to control, to dominate, than the ever-present reality of emptiness? This feeling of discontent is riddled with loss—loss of community, loss of intimacy with the animate world, loss of a larger sense of personal identity as entangled with the cosmos. If we were able to fully honor this grief, our tears would return us to the world.
