  Donald Rothberg
Partly with the reference point of recent violence in Orlando, Minnesota, Louisiana, and Dallas, we explore the nature of judgments related to social conditioning. We look at judgments, both conscious and more hidden (in "implicit bias"), related to social hierarchies based on race, gender, class, sexual orientation, etc. We suggest some initial ways to practice.

2016-10-10 Practicing with Views and Opinions, Cultivating Empathy 1:25:00
  Donald Rothberg
In the context of the current election campaign as well as the context of our daily lives, we explore how to understand and practice with our views, opinions, and interpretations. We first look at the nature of views, the Buddha’s teachings on views, and three main ways to practice with views, with particular attention to being mindful of reactivity (attachment and aversion) in relation to views. We then examine the nature of empathy and how to cultivate empathy in relationship to others (and ourselves), including those with different views.
