Blogs and Sharings

I collect here a varie­ty of resour­ces I love to share and some blog arti­cles on various topics. 

  • How Martin Luther King can help us respond to the elec­tion of Donald Trump (2017)
    Shorty after the elec­tion of Donald Trump for pre­si­den­cy, Miki Kashtan gave a radio inter­view on how Martin Luther King could help us to respond to this situation. 
  • On Compassionate Communication and Loving Speech
    A dhar­ma talk by Thich Nhat Hanh and a blog on how I see non­vio­lent com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on and the pre­sen­ted mind­ful­ness approach com­ple­ting and enri­ching each other.
  • Full pre­sence (Intellectual Understanding and Empathy)
    Marshall Rosenberg shares about this most important ele­ment of empa­thy and a key dis­tinc­tion bet­ween two kinds of under­stan­ding that can be ali­ve in us — intel­lec­tu­al under­stan­ding and com­pas­sio­na­te under­stan­ding. Being awa­re of this key dis­tinc­tion empowers us when our inten­ti­on is to con­nect to the life ener­gy in our­sel­ves and others.
  • Martin Luther King — Loving Your Enemies — Audio Recording
    Martin Luther King Jr. deli­ve­r­ed this ser­mon on November 17, 1957 at the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama. I find this ser­mon con­tains insights that may help us today and tomor­row to move towards healing and recon­ci­lia­ti­on of human­kind — on all levels. From per­so­nal rela­ti­ons­hips, fami­lies, com­mu­nities onto the recon­ci­lia­ti­on bet­ween nations.
