In times like now that I am humbled with the privilege to have the time, space, and safety to engage in topics like these. I offer these up to you as food for thought. Tough Love, or Fierce Compassion was a topic this last weekend during workshop and sacred symbol work. I hope you enjoy this round-table conversation with American Buddhist authors Sharon Salzberg and Robert Thurman.
Meeting Our Enemies and Our Suffering
Two legendary Buddhist teachers shine a light on the lofty ideal of loving your enemies and bring it down to earth. How can that be realistic, and what do we have to do inside ourselves to make it more possible? In a conversation filled with laughter and friendship, Sharon Salzberg and Robert Thurman share much practical wisdom on how we relate to that which makes us feel embattled from without, and from within.
