I’ve returned from Dharamsala, India and have the mother of all jet lag. But what an incredible, life-giving experience was had, together with my colleague in sound design, Zack Rose. The invitation came from the wonderful neuroscientist Richie Davidson, who’s been a guest on On Being several times. The event was originally planned for March 2020, bringing 14 wonderful young “compassionate leaders” into community with each other and into an audience with His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Well, you know how March 2020 unfolded. And yet, this group from around the world began nevertheless to meet by Zoom, coming to know and support one another through many hard, cathartic months in the life of the world and in their lives.
