Video: Michael Stone on “the gift of our wounds”

Michael Stone – The gift of our wounds from Ian MacKenzie on Vimeo.

“What if,” asks Michael Stone in this new video teaching, “somebody who suffered from an eating disorder, or someone who suffered from depression, or someone who suffers from anxiety, recognizes that the way they work with their anxiety, the way their practices help them overcome depression — what if they see that that process of working with their woundedness actually gives them real tools to take positive and creative action in the world?

Thanks to Michael and to Ian MacKenzie, who shot and edited this video, for sharing. You’ll find more from Michael on SunSpace here. And for more on the work of the bodhisattva, see Pema Chodron’s “A Greater Happiness,” from our current issue.

    Thank you. I am especially moved by the framing of the collective in woundedness and positive action.
