POLITICS & PRACTICE / What can activists learn from the contemplative tradition and what can contemplatives learn from activists? How do we balance our own emotional triggers so as to remain skillful in political action? What is the relationship between recapitulated emotional traumas and styles of political engagement? Contemplative Psychotherapist and Assistant Director of the Nalanda Institute, Dr. Miles Neale responds to these questions and more in today’s episode of SADHAKA. Miles is the 5th guest in this 5-day series exploring the intersection of yoga, spirituality, and politics.
