Is Life Actually Suffering?

Is Life Actually Suffering?

This talk from the San Rafael Meditation group with Rick Hanson, Ph.D. is titled, “Is Life Actually Suffering” and comes from the topic of Neurodharma: Breathing in Wholeness. Rick discusses the origins of suffering for individuals, and implores us to look into our own experiences to rest in a sense of fullness.

This talk included a guided meditation which you can download here.


The San Rafael Meditation group is a weekly gathering in San Rafael, California, and is led by Rick Hanson, Ph.D. (and occasional guest teachers). It focuses on cultivating the brain states of self-awareness, calm, and inner peace, lovingkindness, mindfulness, and happiness. Research has shown that this can strengthen your immune system and nurture other health benefits.

This group is open to seasoned meditators and people with less experience, all in an atmosphere that is friendly and focused. Newcomers are always welcome. Learn more here.
