“Play a Greater Part” – Bodhisattva for our Times – Part 1

During scary and uncertain times, the habitual reflex is to try to find ground by creating stories about what’s happening and hardening into us-them blame. This only perpetuates the aggression and violence that is so prevalent in our societies. These two talks are a reflection on how we as awakening bodhisattvas can evolve our consciousness in a way that serves authentic societal healing and transformation.

“There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about.” – Margaret Wheatley

“From bitter searching of the heart,
Quickened with passion and with pain
We rise to play a greater part. …”
~ Leonard Cohen, Villanelle For Our Time
