    Breathing in Compassion

    Like many of you, I have spent the last few days veering between sadness and rage. Trying to balance these emotions has been draining, and I am simply an observer at a safe distance.

    This Full Moon celebrates the Buddha

    Today’s full moon is traditionally dedicated to the Buddha’s birthday and is known as Buddha Purnima (the full moon of the Buddha). Historians can’t agree when he was born exactly, but it was certainly over 2500 years ago. His teachings are unparalleled for their understanding of human nature and psychology.
