2017-12-31 The Bodhisattva in Difficult Times 66:21
This talk explores the Buddhist archetype of the bodhisattva and its universal quality across spiritual and other traditions of commitment to the transformation and awakening of one’s own heart for the benefit and freedom of all beings. The civil rights movement in the U.S.—and the role and courage of Rosa Parks and other ordinary people—is presented as a ‘bodhisattva movement’ and a model and encouragement for the challenges we face today.

2016-12-31 Opening Our Hearts in Challenging Times 65:32
As we bring loving awareness to our all that is arising in our bodies, hearts, and minds, there is a natural falling away of the illusion of separation - of ‘us’ and ‘them’ - and the cultivation of a wise and compassionate heart. With our hearts open to the suffering of the world, the Bodhisattva path of commitment to healing suffering, division and separation provides us with a vision of engaged action in the world in these difficult times.

Compassion has been called ‘the quivering of the heart in response to suffering.' Cultivating a compassionate heart helps us to hold kindly our own painful feelings and emotions, and engage with the suffering of others, near and far.
