Guarding the Gates (The Dharma Toolkit Daily, Episode 5)On Fri, 27 March, 2020 - 01:18
The Internet doesn’t always make things better! What do you do in the face of 24 hour news media that is just not going to stop?
Join us for a conversation about how to guard the gates of our senses when it matters in order to stay sane. Inspiring words about the practice of beauty, being rooted in the body and the senses, staying centred in a storm of input and opinion and views. And a practical pathway towards life done differently, steeped in appreciative awareness of the simple, the good and the true, whatever that looks like to you.
Also discussed today:
- Fear of Covid-19 is a mental contagion – and that’s something we can fight by Ben Okri
- Thought for the Day from Dublin
- A one-take journey through Russia’s iconic Hermitage museum: the trailer | the full movie (5+ hours!)
