The Karma of Covid: The Past, Present, and Future Karma of Corona Virus Disease-19

Loading Events

With Harlan Gilbert

The first of three lecture/workshops. Please note: This workshop was previously scheduled for November 2, 2021.

The current pandemic is having dramatic repercussions on nearly every individual living today. It constitutes a major intrusion into world and individual destiny. In three evening workshops, we will explore the questions: Why a global pandemic, why this one, and why now?

Each workshop will include a lecture, group discussion, and Q&A.

In this workshop, we will explore three ways karma works, each of which influences our experience of the present pandemic:

  • Past karma shapes our experiences and limits our options.
  • In the present, we exercise freedom of will, providing the possibility of transforming old karma and of creating new karma.
  • Our future destiny calls us to prepare for it.

Also in the series: Covid and Medical Technology (February 8) and What Is Covid Asking of Us? (February 15).
