Mindful : August 2018
We also need the programs that are happening at the Garrison Institute. But there is always some danger of preaching to the choir, right? How do you get this information and wisdom to others, to people who aren’t already thinking about this or actively seeking it out? Garrison essentially does two things: We host retreats of amazing contemplative teachers of all different faith traditions, and that actu- ally connects us to our deep font of existing wisdoms. We have a program called CARE for Teachers (Cultivating Awareness and Resilience in Education) that trains teachers in how to use contemplative methods to relieve their stress in the classrooms. We’re bringing contemplative practices to refugee camps with humanitarian aid workers around the world. We, along with a Zen community, hold an end-of-life care confer- ence every year. We’re continually looking to expand the audiences we’re reaching. You’re a busy guy. There’s the book, all the various projects with the Rose Companies, and then the programming at Garrison Institute. What drives you to do all this? What I have been concerned about since I was a teenager, or even younger, was the issue of opportunity. We know now that somebody who lives in the healthiest ZIP code in America has a statistical chance of living 20 years longer than somebody who lives in the least healthy ZIP code. We know that children in the best school districts in the nation have a multiple-times bet- ter chance of thriving than kids who grow up in the worst school districts. We know that there are places with much better environmental health and worse environmental health; much safer, less safe; much better-connected transit, less-connected transit, and so on. All these are functions that contribute to opportunity or lessen opportunity. I deeply believe that opportunity needs to be equally applied and equally delivered to all. America should aspire to bring equal oppor- tunity to every single resident. It doesn’t mean that the outcomes will be the same, but it means the opportunities are the same. Our skills and capabilities to create opportunities have become more advanced over the last 40 years. The press- ing need to bring these skills to bear on our com- munities is much clearer. ● 74 mindful August 2018 society A self-compassionate method to recovering fully from disordered eating A holistic integration of yoga and mindfulness meditation, Ann Saffi Biasetti’s powerful approach liberates people who suffer from disordered eating.
