Dark Times

How can our hearts be unbroken?

Disabled Homeless Man Who Was Set Afire in Spokane Dies

At this time of intense international anxiety, when the world is trapped in a spiral of hatred and fear, it is natural that extreme violence of all forms should erupt. It is also in the nature of beings that dark times such as these should give rise to profound wisdom and compassion.
-Richard Reoch, President of Shambhala International
