2012-03-04 Suffering and Freedom from Suffering 54:04
  Donald Rothberg
We explore the nature and roots of suffering, using in part the teaching of the Two Arrows to help distinguish "pain" and "suffering" linking the latter with reactivity. Being mindful of suffering and reactivity, and learning to experience pain without suffering opens us to greater freedom. We also explore further the nature of freedom and other ways that freedom may be experienced.
