What Helped Make the Pain Go Away

Our guest speaker says: “I have suffered with chronic bodily and mental pain for more than two decades. Knowing about how the pain appears and what makes it continue on opened me up to the world inside me. Just knowing more and opening up to that world magically made most of that pain go away. Even when it does appear now, I am much less bothered by it. I will share my story with the hope that it provides you a path of relief.”

Prashant Billore, who like his wife and son has been a member of UUCPA for several years, has been studying meditation and wellness for about 25 years and teaching for the last five years. He has learnt vipassana, loving kindness, forgiveness, spectrum of awareness and deepening meditations and several other western therapies. He has lately developed interest in the latest discoveries of neuroscience and psychology of affect where he found the missing pieces of the puzzle.

Aarav has been an active member of UUCPA for the past several years. He assisted Rev Dan Harper in teaching Coming of Age and Neighboring Faith Communities. Aarav is destined to the UK for college this fall.
