Listen to Episode 13:

Lately, I’ve been reading books that offer an intersection with the practice of NVC. One of these is Training in Tenderness: Buddhist Teachings on Tsewa, the Radical Openness of Heart That Can Change the World by Dzigar Kongtrul Rimpoche.


Listen to learn the parallels that I found in these practices of warmth, compassion, and open-heartedness, and how much impact these practices can have on the world. If you would like to read this book, you can purchase it here.
