  1. WOW! I love this topic. Thank you for re-clarifying (I say re-clarifying because I’m know you’ve told us this many times before) what our work is as practitioners when communicating with others. There are so many different types of “communication” exercises available out there in the world. It’s very helpful to know the underlying focus that makes communication a liberating and satisfying experience.

  2. Thank you Rinpoche for the potent reminder to look into my own mind instead of trying to fix someone else! It’s so potent to be present to the opportunity before me to practice in this way more deeply…all the time. Recallibrating!!!!!!!!
