It's Already Here

(This whole week, I am at Mount Madonna Center, attending a retreat with Jon Kabat-Zinn and Saki Santorelli. In honor of Jon Kabat-Zinn, I thought I would feature some of my favorite videos of him in my absence. May you enjoy!)

I really love this talk about uncovering our natural compassion:

So true! For me, compassion has evolved over time, and is a direct outcome of my mindfulness practice. Its opposites, unconscious indifference or harming come from not seeing things, or people the way they really are. I know this, from looking back on those times before when I failed to love.
