“You have to perceive this time of messiness.
Time of loss and grief.
Scary but what do we do about the Anthropocene then,
what do we do about these problems?
What do we do about the issues we're confronting as activists, as people?
What do we do?
What do we do?
What do I do?
What do we do as people?
How do we face racism?
Climate change on these matters?
How do we face them ?”

How can we find the courage and the practise to go to places that scare us. How can we build   our ability to be with discomfort and negative emotions ?
Pema Chödrön´s teaching is about that.
When fear, aversion, anger or anxiety has a grip on you, don’t turn away she says. Instead, look your fear, aversion, anger straight in the eyes.

Wir werden in dieser Sitzung eine Auswahl aus ihren Lectures aus dem dreitätigen Retreat “Going to places that scare you” hören.

Knowing the nature of fear.
Training in being present.
Three levels of awareness.
Bearing witness to suffering.

Approach What You Find Repulsive.  
Meditation Practice: "aversion tonglen" (15min)

“Bell Hooks says rarely if ever, are any of us healed in isolation. Healing is an act of communion. And this communion, this ability to hold the tension of our own wholeness, this ability to hear more notes than just the one that we were conditioned to hear is a radical act of social transformation. It's a radical act of Homecoming, of returning to ourselves as multi vocal being more than this or that, and then in our ability to hold that tension and mediate it within ourselves.”

Everything begins with leaving
Unknowing as part of queering practises
