Check out Ethan's new lecture on the Shambhala Podcast, True Love and RomComs." How does meditation, and the dharma, help us dance with the intensity of love and relationships? Remember to check out the award-winning book The Road Home: A Contemporary Exploration of the Buddhist Path if you haven't already. This Shambhala podcast has lots of great teachers and lectures on it (Ethan is featured about once every three or four episodes), so you probably just subscribe via iTunes. Enjoy!
Working for peace has to start with oneself. It doesn't ever END there; sometimes spiritual teachings lead us to think that all we have to do is take care of ourselves, which is not nearly enough. (more…)
(follow Ethan on Facebook or Twitter) It was my great pleasure to co-teach Shambhala NYC's Weekly Dharma Gathering a few months ago with dear friend, author, and awesome teacher Susan Piver. Hopefully we will get to do it more often. The podcast of the lecture is here. (Not sure why our podcast isn't up on iTunes yet, but it's easy to download at the link above). Topics covered included how to open your heart and work with people you disagree with (politically and otherwise), What to do when people mess with you in a whole Whole Foods parking lot (haha), and what to do when your family lives in a country people are calling Dumb-F@#$-istan! Check it out.
