LEARNING AND GROWTH

“Sometimes painful things can teach us lessons that we didn’t think we needed to know.” Most mid-singles are familiar with learning through pain. A deep sense of compassion, skillful self-reliance, and the ability to turn wounds into wisdom can develop, perhaps in no other way than through the loss of a significant relationship.

A FRIEND, A TEMPLE, AND A LEGEND

In November 2017, I (Jeff Teichert) was in China. These two pictures are of the Leifing Pagoda (Temple) near Westlake in Hangzhou, and my translator, Mei. She became a good friend.
