    Everyday Buddhism 44 - Chaos and Order: Personal Reflections, Poetry, and Chaos Theory

    Everyday Buddhism 44 - Chaos and Order: Personal Reflections, Poetry, and Chaos Theory

    Join me for an episode that is part autobiographical, part solidarity with Pride and Black Lives matter, part poetry, part science, and part Buddhism. Sounds a bit chaotic, doesn't it? Yet I hope you find some relevant order. Sharing a recent experience with my own revisiting of internal trauma, I tried to find order in the chaos. Yet, in the suffering and chaos there may be a new heartbeat; the birth of a new order, if we lean in and keep going with strong back and soft front.

    Join me for a special guest episode with Dr. Christiane Michelberger, who currently mentors seekers in their quest to awaken.

Our choice is to respond like victims or like the brave front-line workers, with a noble response to suffering.

    Everyday Buddhism 40 - Covid-19 Mind Protection

    The whole world is afraid. A tiny piece of biological stuff brought the world to its knees. A contagion or plague of this level is not new to the world but new to most of us living today. There has never been a better time to develop a practice of finding a healthy balance between being informed and tormenting yourself. Listen as I share mantra, breathing, awareness, and mindful writing practices that might help.

    Everyday Buddhism 39 - Let's Not Talk About Politics

    Everyday Buddhism 39 - Let's Not Talk About Politics

    There is a view of Buddhism that is idealistic. That it's all about meditating and chanting in an incense-filled room, hidden away from the world. That the peace promised in Buddhism comes from being away from, above, or different from, the troubles of the world. The peace the Buddha promised is found in a personal understanding of ignorance and the practice to overcome it. The peace you seek is not an escape from the world but an understanding of it.
