The Speech Wheel: Compassion and Social Healing
These guided meditations recorded by Dr. Joe Loizzo are meant to support all four horizons of contemplative learning and meditative practice that make up the gradual path to freedom and happiness taught in the Nalanda tradition. These are the same horizons of learning and practice covered in Nalanda offerings, including one-time meditations, Fall and Spring classes, Winter and Summer retreats and the Four Year Program in Sustainable Happiness.
II. The Speech Wheel: Compassion and Social Healing
Open-Mindedness: Exposing and Clearing the Reactive Self
Introduces the art of contemplative self-analysis, which traces our stress-reactive bias and habits to their root-our traumatic self-constructs and self-protective instincts-then works to expose and clear these blocks to unbiased awareness and radical open-mindedness.
Building Compassion: Reversing the Flow of Give and Take
Covers the art of building unconditional love and universal compassion, by adopting all beings as part of our family of life and reversing the self-centered flow of give and take by taking care and giving love to all life, one interaction at a time.
Compassionate Openess: Engaging the Proactive Self
Covers the final step in the art of clearing the mind for social engagement: learning to shift our childhood reactive sense of self to a mature self based on the impartial awareness of radical open-mindedness and the team spirit of unconditional love, care, joy and equanimity.
