Wildmind’s latest newsletter
Wildmind’s monthly newsletter goes out tomorrow at 11:00 EST. It offers articles on the theme of “Solitude” by Kulananda, Sunada, and Bodhipaksa. Kulananda writes about a pilgrimage to an Irish island where hardy monks lived lives of intense spirituality for 600 years.
Sunada reflects on being an introvert in a world of extroverts, and how that’s a good thing! Lots of encouragement there for you “I”s. Bodhipaksa takes a quote by French thinker Blaise Pascal on how much of our busyness in the world is driven by an inability to accept ourselves.
As well as the solitude articles we also have a piece by the late, great, and sometimes wayward Chogyam Trungpa Rimpoche, in which he offers advice on how to see the spiritual path as one of Warriorship (the theme of last month’s newsletter, oddly enough). And Danamaya has an article on her relationship with Ratnasambhava. If you’ve ever wondered about the connection between Snow White and the spiritual life, don’t miss Danamaya’s excellent piece.
There’s also the standard news about our forthcoming classes, and the ongoing free trial of the Open Circle, our online study and practice community.
