FORM Community Session 8
In practicing these eight FORM Community cycles, we hope you will have greater resilience when you face times that are painful or dark. In learning to breathe and stay present with your body, you will be able to manage the stress more effectively. As challenges arise, have hope that through your meditation practices you will have the mindset to be able to endure all things and maintain a calming presence for those around you.
These closing clips introduce you to people who have endured tremendous difficulty and not grown bitter. Rather, they have made art, found laughter, and can awaken us to the possibilities.
