A dark moon, a broken temple, a fallen guru, these are the archetypes that emerged on our recent sacred journey to Indonesia. Along with these symbols also came a message of hope, the light of a new day, our innate unwavering capacity to heal, and the birth of our inner guru. Come and listen to Buddhist psychotherapist Dr. Miles Neale as he shares stories and life lessons from pilgrimage that can help us navigate the journey of our complex lives with greater meaning and purpose.
