    Wisdom And Mind Awareness

    Wisdom And Mind Awareness

    In this podcast, Dr Stan Steindl discusses the role of mind awareness in compassionate wisdom. Specifically, the first step in compassionate wisdom is to be able to become aware of the mind, understand it, and understand how it works. When difficult emotions arise, then we move towards and experience the emotions. Not easy, and takes a lot of courage! But important!

    Wisdom Talk: From Reservation To Activation

    Wisdom Talk: From Reservation To Activation

    Our minds can so easily get caught up in difficult loops. It can be very difficult stepping out of those loops and into the compassionate mind. Not least, we have reservations that hold us back from compassion towards self and others. So what can take us from reservation to activation of the compassionate mind? In this podcast, Dr Stan Steindl introduces the concept of Wisdom Talk: exploring and expressing our wisdom, insight and understanding of what lies behind our experience.

    Discovering Compassionate Wisdom

    Discovering Compassionate Wisdom

    In this podcast, Dr Stan Steindl dives a little deeper into discovering compassionate wisdom and the role it plays in cultivating the compassionate mind. Given the genes that were designed for us, the tricky brains and bodies we were born with, and the experiences that shaped us, so much of our suffering is not our fault. Ultimately, compassionate wisdom is about taking responsibility for the difficulties we may face in our own lives without blaming or shaming ourselves or others, and finding ways that we can be helpful, rather than harmful.
