Daily Meditation Recordings, with Milla Gregor – Week of June 20, 2022

This week’s topic is Skills for Inner and Outer Transformation.

 

Dharma practice gives us great tools for inner and interpersonal change. It’s empowering to explore how these can also be useful for social and environmental transformation. We will tour such qualities, including equanimity (upekkha), non-self (anatta), and sukha (yes, pleasure!). Together, we will draw on both traditional and more contemporary voices to show how your skills as a practitioner could be vital to the work of changing the world.
