Bodhipaksa, a long-standing Order Member and founder of the Wildmind meditation teaching website, writes from his home in New England to say - “I gave a TEDx talk a few days ago – the first Order Member to do so, as far as I’m aware. It was titled, ‘The Surprising Secret to Unlocking Compassion’ and was part of a series called ‘Compassion and Education: The Spirit Within’. The raw footage of the entire event is here; my talk starts at 14:10 and is 18 minutes long in total. The feedback’s been very good, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it’ll be selected for the ted.com site”.
TED’s mission is to promote “ideas worth spreading” with a wide-ranging program of talks on “Technology, Entertainment, and Design”; and the TEDx program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. Bodhipaksa was speaking near his home, at the Timberlane Regional Performing Arts Centre in New Hampshire.
