Compassion, opening, integrating, responding

Compassion the purpose and heart of practice, with insight and clarity as methods and tools for seeing how my experience and the world around me are connected and interdependent.

Rather than focusing or generating special states or attacking patterns in an attempt to get rid of them, softening and opening to the reality I'm experiencing. Bringing together the sensations, feelings, stories, and behaviors that arise: integrating, healing, whole-ing.

Taking responsibility, cultivating response-ability: responding to suffering, rather than trying to fix a problem or save the world.
