Equality As An Embodied Practice (VIDEO)
Does dharma’s universality mean that it appears in the same way, to all people, in all circumstances? Or does our embodied experience in “realms” of existence — living in poverty, under occupation, with addiction, in abusive relationship — affect how the dharma shows up in our lives?
Our friend Joshua Stephens explores these questions and more in this dharma talk, shared with permission. Enjoy!
