COLUMN: Radical Compassion

Interview with Jerry Colonna, Chair of the Board at Naropa University

  • conducted by Cameron Wenaus of retreat.guru and Sarah Lipton, Editor-in-Chief of the Shambhala Times
  • transcribed by J.R Gilness, Shambhala Times Volunteer
    written by Jayne Sutton, Shambhala Times Volunteer
  • “When you walk into this world of reality, the greater or cosmic world, you will find … a deep sense of aloneness. It is possible that this world could become a palace or a kingdom to you, but as its king or queen, you will be a monarch with a broken heart. It is not a bad thing to be, by any means. In fact it is the way to be a decent human being—and beyond that a glorious human being who can help others.”
    ~ Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche in Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior

    The Field of Stillness

    Photo courtesy of Jennifer HolderCOLUMN: Dharma Teachings by Roger Guest There are many ways to ground ourselves in presence. We might walk slowly and mindfully, meditate on the breath, focus on sensations within the body or place our attention on an object in the environment. Some might be instructed to recite mantras and visualize the world as sacred. While the list of mindfulness and awareness tools and methods is long and perhaps getting longer, the underlying issues they are intended to address can be simplified into one simple phrase-basic anxiety. Likewise, ‘All dharmas agree at one point’, as is said, and that point is ‘egolessness’. continue
