    Everyday Buddhism 42 - How Not to Feel Like a Victim

    Everyday Buddhism 42 - How Not to Feel Like a Victim

    As we make our way through the global Covid-19 pandemic we see humbling examples of courage and compassion. And we also see examples of people responding in fear and anger. The pandemic is teaching us about interdependence, change, and impermanence in a profound way. 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

    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.

    Everyday Buddhism 38 - And Yet, And Yet

    Everyday Buddhism 38 - And Yet, And Yet

    This is a special episode dedicated to the life of our good friend and neighbor—too soon lost. It focuses on the haiku by Issa:

    "This world of dew
    is a world of dew,
    and yet, and yet."

    Listen as I read writings of my grief and how I come to the realization that maybe "and yet" is not just "nevertheless it hurts" but also "but yet." It's all in how you show up for yourself and for others.

Let Down

I was so excited when I found this podcast; as I am in a deep learning phase of Buddhism. However I had to stop listening. I do not think politics have a place in study and the little remarks she makes are a distraction from the teaching. Perhaps a distraction I should learn to overcome and just take what is relevant, but a distraction none the less.

Incredibly helpful.

I really have enjoyed this podcast. I began listening when the COVID-19 virus became present in the US as for my anxiety towards work, health, etc. started to rise. I hadn’t been actively practicing mindfulness and Buddhism as regularly as would have liked. I started looking for podcasts to help guide me to get back on track. I am so glad I came across this one! I love Wendy’s take on Mindfulness. She keeps things simple and easy to follow but still formulates really powerful messages that can be applicable to every day life.

I make a point every morning to sit down and take in one episode with my coffee. Great way to start off the day.

Thanks for your work Wendy! It has really helped me get through!

No words

I can not express how lucky I am to have found your podcast. For a long time I was searching for a show that was real, genuine and open to Buddhism and every day struggles. You are amazing and your words of wisdom are on point. I myself am studying Buddhism and try my best to be at peace and kind. Yes it is hard as I am hard on myself. But your first few episodes made me think that trying my best is enough and I can take it day by day. I have shared your show with those that seek my advice and guidance as I teach others about crystals and the teaching of Buddhism. I mean I'm no master but I share what I've learned and it makes me so happy to see how that's made them happy. I'm definitely buying your book! Love that you're a woman and a Buddhist. I have someone to look up to. I've got my girlfriend well now fiance and our son who's 10 listening to you on a daily. You're simply amazing. Blessings and hugs.
