Being Brave in Halifax

The Chronicles of CTR covers the recent Sangha Retreat in Halifax, titled Being Brave: Transforming Our World, which took place in Halifax, Nova Scotia, August 5-10. Here’s an excerpt from Bonnie Rabin’s account of the Sakyong’s teaching at this retreat:

Sakyong Mipham, embodying the themes of basic goodness and enlightened society, encouraged us, in our meditation, to ask ourselves how we feel. Whatever we are feeling is a doorway. The only real obstacle to connecting to basic goodness is not knowing. Be awake and open to your own experience. Feel your heart. Look inside, be a spy. Treat yourself as your own beloved child. When we begin to trust and respect our worthiness, the notion of bravery is kindled in our hearts and minds. Then together, we can create enlightened society.
