Lama Rod Owens
Meditation teacher, coauthor of Radical Dharma
The world is unsteady and seemingly chaotic, and it’s hard to maintain our physical and emotional balance. Resiliency, a critical skill right now, helps us meet the challenges of our lives with a sense of openness and curiosity, which in turn helps us to regain our balance. One of the methods we use to sustain our resiliency is mourning—tapping into our sadness and hopelessness in order to offer the space to simply be within our experience. Explore resilience, balance, and mourning on the path to healing in this powerful session.
Lama Rod Owens is an author, activist, and authorized lama (Buddhist teacher) in the Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism, and he is considered one of the leaders of his generation of Buddhist teachers. He holds a master of divinity degree in Buddhist studies from Harvard Divinity School, and he is a coauthor of Radical Dharma: Talking Race, Love, and Liberation. Owens is the cofounder of Bhumisparsha, a Buddhist tantric practice and study community; has been published and featured in Buddhadharma, Lion’s Roar, Tricycle, and Harvard Divinity Bulletin; and has offered talks, retreats, and workshops in more than seven countries. Owens facilitates undoing patriarchy workshops for male-identified practitioners in Brooklyn and Boston. His most recent book is Love and Rage: The Path of Liberation through Anger.
Pat McCabe, Woman Stands Shining
Diné (Navajo) grandmother, activist, artist, writer
What can we learn about being human from an indigenous worldview, and how might this change our relationship with healing? Thich Nhat Hanh calls us “interbeings,” Pat McCabe teaches, which is a very indigenous principle. It implies that our relationships with ourselves, with each other, and with the larger-than-human community—both in Nature and in the Spiritual Realm—are critical to harmony and health for all. Unfortunately, our modern world paradigm—its economics, institutions, and patterns—makes relationships and relating tangential at best and impossible at worst. But what if humanity were “plugged into” an entirely different paradigm? What would become possible?
Pat McCabe (Weyakpa Najin Win, Woman Stands Shining) is a Diné (Navajo) mother, grandmother, activist, artist, writer, ceremonial leader, and international speaker. She is a voice for global peace, and her paintings are created as tools for individual, earth, and global healing. She draws upon the indigenous sciences of Thriving Life to reframe questions about sustainability and balance, and she is devoted to supporting the next generations, Women’s Nation, and Men’s Nation in being functional members of the “Hoop of Life” and upholding the honor of being human.
