2023-02-19 Ten Ways of Practicing Skillfully with the Challenges of Our World 57:00
Donald Rothberg
We continually are aware of so much that is painful in the world, whether related to police violence, war, earthquakes, the challenges to democracy, or the climate crisis. How can we be with and respond to what is painful (and also hopeful) from the perspective of our practice? What is “wise view” in relationship to the pain of the world? How do we get caught in unskillful views? How can we respond skillfully? Inspired by many wonderful teachers and exemplars, in this talk and discussion, I want to explore ten foundational ways of responding to these questions that can orient us in these challenging times.

Nathan Glyde
The hindrances are essential to notice, and to question, to gently challenge their view. Doubt is one of the most pernicious hindrances: anytime we consider stopping or not starting our practice, it is doubt declaring confidently: "there is nothing here for you, no liberation, no beauty, no meaningfulness". But there is! Guided meditation, and Dharma reflection, with just the answer to some questions at the end.
