elephant’s not about the “the green life”, because if you’re yelling at your children about recycling, clearly something’s off, right. But if we’re just meditating and letting the world burn, that’s selfish. We call it “the mindful life”:
“Community really is the answer, but community is almost the opposite of cliquishness or clubbiness. I was a huge nerd in junior high, which always gave me a compassion and empathy for wallflowers. So I think if we could all take that as a mindfulness task—to engage the people who don’t seem like they’re comfortable and spend a little less energy talking to the yoga instructor…instead, talk to someone who looks lonely.”
~ Waylon Lewis, huge nerd, at Wanderlust Colorado, 2012
Wanderlust is welcoming Waylon back to Wanderlust Colorado in 2013: he’ll hosting another Speakeasy session on Sunday July 7th at 10am entitled, “Buddhist Meditation for Business, Family & Bliss in Everyday Life: Social Activism Starts at Home” (sign up for the talk here), as well as two hikes around the theme of “God, She is to be found in the out-of-doors” (sign up for his hikes here).
