On Sunday we reflected on the current uncertainties and anxieties in the US and worldwide, and the role of our practice in helping to navigate these, and in providing refuge.
Margaret guided our reflections, and used a talk by Thanisara to guide our reflections. Thanisara was cofounder of a retreat center in Kwazulu-Natal in South Africa, and has done extensive work in the area. She incorporates the wisdom of indigenous people in her analysis of the problems of our times. And living in South Africa, she has lived through the extremes of national uncertainty and anxiety.
