How to create a sane world: a Buddhist View (part 2)August 17, 2020 | 18 Comments

Meditation practice begins at 7:58
Hello wonderful Open Heart Project. I hope you are feeling safe and well. It is a very intense time and I’m happy to be back in touch on a weekly basis rather than monthly. I hope you find these short talks and guided meditations useful and empowering.
Last week, I discussed the first step along the eight-fold path, right view. Since the eight-fold path describes a path to sanity, decency, and clarity, I thought it would make a good source of material for us to contemplate. Before this week’s sit, I offer a few thoughts about the second step, right intention.
Next week, my favorite! Right speech.
As a reminder, these weekly emails are completely free. If you know anyone who might benefit from them, they can sign up here.
One more reminder: when the pandemic began in the US, the Open Heart Project began offering free daily meditation gatherings. They have proven to be a really useful way to fit meditation into your day, connect with fellow practitioners, and receive regular reminders that you are not alone. Sittings happen at 9a ET, 3p ET, and 6p ET, Monday-Friday. Each 30-minute gathering is lead by an experienced meditation teacher who is qualified to guide you in the exact practice we do in these emails. Each meditation is 20 minutes long, followed by a 10-minute discussion.
Be well! Stay strong!
