Bryan Wade: Being Parents for Our Children and Ourselves – Podcast 254


The winter solstice is the time of year for the Shambhala Children’s Day celebration, which is about much more than children. Using gentleness and bravery as tools, the Shambhala Teachings train us to work with our everyday world through meditation. This training can help us become better parents for our children. We can even learn to be better parents for ourselves. In this talk, we will look at how our meditation practice trains us to pass along wisdom from parents to children, wisdom from many generations before us to many generations in the future.
