2021-05-29 Finding Refuge in the Unknown 38:28
Janine Schipper
When we're stressed or overwhelmed, we often move towards the comfort of the known, that which we feel we can count on or control. Yet at the heart of the Buddha's teachings is a recognition that our attempts to grasp onto anything, including the known, bring suffering. In this talk, Janine explores how finding refuge in the uncertain and unknown opens us up to new possibilities for freedom and peace.

Exploring one of the most destructive collective illusions of Western Society— that we are separate from each other and separate from the rest of the natural world— Janine asks: How may we begin to heal the divisions with each other and with the more than human world? What is the relationship between mindfulness practices and social justice work? How may mindfulness practices foster positive social change and how may a social justice orientation complement our mindfulness practices?
