“Whatever occurs in your life—environmental problems, political problems, psychological problems—should be transformed into a part of your wakefulness, or bodhi. Such wakefulness is a result of the practice of shamatha-vipashyana discipline, as well as our basic understanding of soft spot, or bodhichitta.”
—Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche in Training the Mind
Pandemics, injustice, systemic racism, climate change, environmental destruction, hard-to-face history, fears for the future—it is tempting to just check out. At times like this, we have a choice: we can use our practice as an escape or we can apply our training to transform how we engage with these challenges.
In this program, we will look into how Buddhist training can help us transform how we relate to such challenges—and how such challenges can help us transform how we relate to our dharma training.
The program is offered by donation—whatever people can afford will be graciously accepted. As a guide, an event such as this would typically be $108 for the whole program or $40 per talk, but it is up to the individual participant to determine what he or she donates.
