The Queer Witch Podcast


Dec 19, 2018

This week, I found myself doing something I hadn’t done in a while: meditating.

 

I felt called in my meditation to revisit a book I had once loved; Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior by Chogyam Trungpa. I bought this book from the Shambhala Center in Boston where I first learned meditation almost 7 years ago.

 

In this episode, I discuss:

-A brief intro to the context and content of Shambhala, which is a secular spiritual practice with its roots in Tibet

-A big question that has been on my mind: “How do I have compassion for myself knowing I benefit from systems of oppression? How do I find compassion for all living beings knowing that some of those beings are violent bigots?”

-My memories of learning to meditate and what meditation means to me

-Some of my favorite excerpts from The Sacred Path of the Warrior

 

If you would like to go deeper into The Sacred Path of the Warriro, there is a free pdf available of the book here:
