How To Be Thankful in the Midst of Sadness: Holding Sadness in One Hand and Gratitude in the Other
In this podcast, we'll explore finding ways to say "thank you" in this time of loss, fear, despair, and uncertainty. Our lives are a gift. We did not plan, arrange, or have any control in making our births happen. We were gifted them. For that gift, despite how rocky our lives sometimes seem, we say "thank you!" Listen to how you can use mindful awareness to shift your focus to what's in front of you ... to "just this" and relax in the whole of life—if only for a few minutes.
Steady, Calm and Brave with Kimberly Brown
Join me in conversation with Kimberly Brown as we discuss her new book, a handbook of healing tools to help us through the fraught times of 2020—and beyond. In a delightfully honest and personal conversation, she shares her personal experience with trauma and how metta, body-based, and self-compassion Buddhist and pyschotherapeutic practices helped heal her and formed the intention for her to become a teacher of these practices.
The Social Dilemma and Otherness: Seeing Beyond False Certainties and Objectification
In this episode I take a Buddhist view on the spell we've fallen under—and it is the spell of a self-involved culture, swallowed by social media and focused on the hatred of "the other."
We are largely living in a world of the extremes of ignorance and false certainty. Yet, nothing or no one is a fixed, discrete thing. Everything is empty of inherent existence. When you fix a difficult person, a political side, or sociopolitical view, you are creating something that doesn't actually exist.

Thanks, Wendy, for feeding us little bits at a time that we can weave into our daily lives. The more aware we are, the better we understand one another. I am a newbie (episode 13 is up next) and loving it so far!
Conservatives not welcome
I enjoy much of what she has to teach, but about once an episode I flinch as she barely masks her distaste of conservative politics.
Can conservatives follow Buddhist principles? It doesn’t feel like it to me. I do not feel welcome.
I’ve been interested in Buddhism for years, this podcast NAILS IT!! Perfect and simple to understand.
