Hurting is about the role both trauma and suffering play in our lives and fundamentally how trauma, which is natural, and suffering, which is cultural, are completely different from one another.

Trauma is something natural and is that creative influence from our environment which shapes us and makes us all unique and individual. Contrast this with suffering, which is attachment to a specific outcome motivated primarily through fear and other similar and related emotions such as shame, guilt, anxiety or because we're far too attached to a personal belief.

This book goes into such things as the differences in the approach to both trauma and suffering between Buddhism and Qultura, the lack of consciousness and empathy which comes from societal indifference to the trauma and suffering of others around us.

It also goes into the catharsis of becoming street homeless and defines the sharp edge of humanity.

Through this book you can gain a deeper understanding in the strategy of reverse participation and commitment to first contact unconditional community support advocated by the universal volunteering system, developed by Qultura Core.
