    Misunderstanding and Fear

    Misunderstanding and Fear

    We continue our series of posts with questions and answers. In this eleventh post, we hear a question on the theme of spiritual leaders being killed.







    * Jesus, Martin Luther King and Gandhi were all killed and I know that you were exiled from Vietnam. Why do bad things happen to spiritual people?

    Sexual Abuse at the Family Level

    Sexual Abuse at the Family Level

    We continue our series of posts with questions and answers. In this tenth post, we hear questions on the theme of sexual abuse in families.







    * Earlier we had a question about transforming suffering from sexual misconduct at a community level. Now we have a question from several people about transforming this at an individual level and the family level. One person shared about being abused as a child and now as an adult, what can I do to help heal this scared little child who feels like the past is the present. Another person shared about sexual abuse in their family and I’m afraid for a new baby’s safety in our family.

    * Two years ago I was here extremely depressed and anxious. You said, people feel the storm of the mind when experiencing depression. For now that storm has subsided. I now have fear about losing my mother, and people in my family, and how can I transform this fear?* Thank you for your light. Often times I struggle with judging, and I think I’m getting better, but when I do judge people I am happy to be proven wrong. The challenge is when I judge other people for being judgmental. How can I overcome this type of judging judging?

    Chronic Depression and Medications

    Chronic Depression and Medications

    We continue our series of posts with questions and answers. In this eighth post, we hear one question.







    Many of us experience chronic depression. Earlier in the retreat you talked about what is feeding that depression. For me, there is also an underlying biochemical component. Do you think I should not need medication and heal from the practice only?

    There are 10-million people with cancer. Recently I was diagnosed with late-stage cancer and given a period remaining to live. And yet I am still alive today. Is there a path for me to do my spiritual work before I pass on?

    Sexual Misconduct

    Question about healing within my church community. A church leader who has acted inappropriately with sexual misconduct. The person is now gone, but we still need a healing process. Is that important even when some don’t want to or with people who didn’t even know the person?

Love his teachings!

A longtime student of the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh, I feel they are so relevant and important. HOWEVER, between this podcast and YouTube, I have yet to find an audio compilation that is easy to listen too. Please, let’s find a way to fix the audio so that his words can be heard easily!
