This week, I found myself doing something I hadn’t done in a while: meditating.
I felt called in my meditation to revisit a book I had once loved; Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior by Chogyam Trungpa. I bought this book from the Shambhala Center in Boston where I first learned meditation almost 7 years ago.
In this episode, I discuss:
-A brief intro to the context and content of Shambhala, which is a secular spiritual practice with its roots in Tibet
-A big question that has been on my mind: “How do I have compassion for myself knowing I benefit from systems of oppression? How do I find compassion for all living beings knowing that some of those beings are violent bigots?”
-My memories of learning to meditate and what meditation means to me
-Some of my favorite excerpts from The Sacred Path of the Warrior
If you would like to go deeper into The Sacred Path of the Warriro, there is a free pdf available of the book here:
