In the February 2022 issue of our newsletter, we explored the core values that unite us as Ministers. The May issue offered intimate reflections from our authors on processing change, loss, trauma and grief during these past few turbulent years. For the August issue, we examined the possible gifts that have been gained—at the same time acknowledging the ever-changing landscape of the world in the midst of a pandemic, political upheaval, and our own Dharmic organizational challenges.
For our November issue, we turn our focus toward the heart, and the possibility of forming heartfelt connections with one another that transcend both position and polarity.
Our authors for this issue were asked to respond to to the following questions:
How do we start to form connections that are beyond position, in an effort to begin healing our Dharma, our communities, and the members of our Sangats? How do we let go of our need to be “right”? How can we continue to relate to each other when we have differences of opinion? What is the role of the Neutral Mind during these times of challenge? How can we come together in a space of service and love that recognizes our shared humanity?
