    • Fantastic question. Thank you! I will pass this on.
    • Hi Gillian: Today I read an excerpt from The Collected Works of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche explaining the causes and remedies of samsara, or suffering. Central to Buddhism, as I understand it, is that feeding the concept or the "self" (the "I"/"mine" delusion) is one of the main causes of distorted realities, desires, and attachments, all of which lead to suffering (this much I understand and agree with). He then proposes that in order to stop the suffering, among other things, we must understand that the "self" is a mere concept and that we must examine the non-existence of the self. I would love to learn more about how we can learn to examine/understand the "non-existence" of the self, what does it really mean?
    • In last Wednesday's call, the question came up about whether or not any practices one leads during the new Tuesday support calls can count towards the certification requirements. It's been decided that one teaching per type of meditation can be led during the support calls. In other words, of the 21 meditations you need to lead before submitting for certification, up to seven can be from the support calls - one per type of meditation. Let me know if you have any questions about this.
    • Thanks for your comments Lucia! I also really like that differentiation between tender and fierce compassion. Fierce compassion is something I feel called to lately (in various areas of my life) and so I am going to further explore how to practice this. I struggle at times to know when the 'fierce' loses its compassion and when the compassion needs more 'fierce'. A learning journey for sure!
