To control is to demand that others be what we want, need, or expect them to be. Control impoverishes the space between self and other, by blocking the not-knowing from which wise and compassionate knowing would otherwise grow.

In this lecture and workshop, we look at ways to accept Buddha nature in others by letting go of reliance on the premature knowing of control. We will explore how deep mindfulness of reality combined with lovingkindness practice nourish our ability to relate to others as they are.
