Venerable Thubten Chodron
on The Yoga Hour Online Broadcast
Thursday, July 9, 8 am PT (10 am CT, 11 am ET)
Compassionate living requires wisdom and courage. Kindness towards oneself, other people, and all of life is natural way of being that at the same time must be cultivated as we heal old wounds and become more skillful at offering our help to bring about healing in the world. Yogacharya Ellen Grace O’Brian from the Center for Spiritual Enlightenment is joined by Venerable Thubten Chodron, an American-born Buddhist nun, the founder and abbess of Sravasti Abbey and the co-author of An Open-Hearted Life, for a conversation about the way of compassion. What is compassion? How do we become more skillful at expressing compassion? What are the benefits of embracing an open-hearted life? Listen and be inspired to live with your heart wide open.
