Daily Dharma

In order to open—in meditation and in life in general—we must let go of our familiar thoughts and emotions, we must step out from behind the safe curtain of our inner rehearsals and onto the stage of reality, even if it’s for just a brief moment.

Writer, scholar, and meditation teacher Jay Michaelson, Ph.D., will speak about four ways that embracing life’s “shit”—difficult emotions in particular—can open us up to the fullness of our experience.

Pad Yatra: A Green Odyssey

Pad Yatra: A Green Odyssey documents the journey of 700 eco-pilgrims who undertake an arduous 450-mile trek across the Himalayas in the name of environmental preservation. Despite subzero temperatures and dangerous conditions, the hikers, led by H.H. the Gyalwang Drukpa, collect half a ton of plastic litter, plant over 50,000 trees, and educate local villagers.
