Practitioners of compassion inevitably ask, “What specific actions should I take?” to address injustice in their lives. Cultivating the qualities of mindfulness, common humanity and kindness is a good foundation for compassionate action, and when we add a measure of wisdom, we can surely change the world for the better.
By participating in and benefitting from an unjust system, we perpetuate racism. We need to have self-compassion to see our role in racism clearly, holding this uncomfortable truth with love and acceptance, so we can wake up and commit to do things differently.
Online retreats can be a loving refuge amidst chaos in the time of global pandemic. Beth Mulligan shares that by gently challenging our expectations for what a retreat "should" look like, we open ourselves to seeing that one need not travel to "get away from it all." Indeed, the potential for connection, insight, and ease are right here at home.
