Guest edited by long-time Order of Interbeing member Valerie Brown and Dharma teacher John Bell, this issue is infused with reflections about engaged practice with current events.

  • In “Nondiscrimination” Thich Nhat Hanh tells us about our true home, the wisdom of nondiscrimination and interbeing, the three complexes, and the Four Noble Truths.
  • Cheri Maples shares about restoring peace and safety in our community and working with people around race awareness, particularly in the criminal justice system.
  • Practitioners share tools to practice with current events, seven ways to help end racism, a four-step guide to reconcile with our European ancestry, and approaches to respond appropriately to terrorism. 
  • Practitioners reveal heartfelt insights from their experiences with working with the police, offering race awareness classes to white people, organizing gatherings to support the Women’s March in Washington, D.C., supporting prisoners, having dinner with Bill Clinton, and collaborating with grassroots organizations in international development.
  • International environmental activists reflect on fracking in the United Kingdom, last fall’s Earth Holder retreat with monastics in New Mexico, and work as an Earth guardian to protect natural resources in New Zealand.
