Sounds True and Tara Brach present a 10 day radical compassion challenge.

My takeaways today are many. Listening to understand and to connect with the reverence for all lives. Even those lives with whom you strongly disagree! Yikes! Van Jones was persistent in this interview about the ways in which we don’t “see” the other person, we just “see” what they are arguing for or against. Compassion starts with a yearning to understand another’s humanness.

Tara’s meditation today focused on bringing others to mind and seeing our shared vulnerability with them. Those we love, those we’re in conflict with, those we don’t know because they are so different from us, the other beings that inhabit this planet with us and the earth herself. “Cultivating a reverence for all life.”

What a journey! I am so thankful to have made the time for this!
