Warriorship and Vulnerability

with Moh Hardin
October 4 / 10:00 AM - October 4 / 12:00 PM

The path of the warrior bodhisattva is to step out of our self-centredness into openness, to expand from meness into vastness, to emerge from our cocoon and flutter our beautiful, tender wings. But how can we do this without experiencing vulnerability? We can’t! 

 So let us explore vulnerability and warriorship in this talk and discussion, the personal experience and workability of vulnerability in our lives and on our spiritual path. Here are a few thoughts to consider:

 The sociology researcher Brené Brown talks about “The Power of Vulnerability.” (TED Talks: Brené Brown, “The Power of Vulnerability,, a 20 minute talk that has had 49,369,136 views last time I watched it.) To quote her:

“The folks who felt worthy had the courage to be imperfect. They had the compassion to be kind to themselves first and then to others...and they had connection. As a result of authenticity (authentic presence), they were willing to let go of who they thought they should be in order to be who they are...

Chögyam Trungpa taught:

“The only true elegance is vulnerability.”

Everyone is most heartedly invited to this special teaching!
