This is an online class for people who are working with the fierce teachers of chronic illness or chronic pain. In this six-part interactive class we will share our stories and explore practices that may be useful on the journey. A four-part class was offered in Fall 2022, and this class will continue and expand on those teachings. Continuing and new students to the class are both welcome.

Zenshin Florence Caplow, who will be teaching the class, has "danced" with auto-immune illness for the last two decades, including rheumatoid arthritis. She is also a Zen priest and teacher, co-editor of The Hidden Lamp: Stories from Twenty Five Centuries of Awakened Women, and a Unitarian Universalist minister.

Optional readings will be shared during the class. To prepare, students may wish to read Turning Suffering Inside Out by Darlene Cohen (available through the SFZC Online Store), and the essay by Florence Caplow in the journal Inquiring Mind on "Dancing in the Dark Fields." Florence also offered a Dharma talk at City Center on this subject that can be viewed below.
