THE HUMAN VEHICLE CHALLENGE
We live in challenging times for which we have responsibility. Human beings deliver into this world a great deal more than genetic material; we convey within us attitudes, inclinations, and the unfinished business of previous generations. Lack of awareness about what we carry perpetuates age-old conflicts. But the nature of our awareness, when it is properly trained and put to good use, gives us the power to meet not only the challenges we face presently, but to alleviate the suffering of future generations.
LIFE IS FULL OF SURPRISES
“If anything, the experience of encountering mortality was strangely reassuring…” Patton Hyman is featured on Shambhala’s Aging Hub, sharing the story of how serious illness affirmed his relationship to mindfulness.
