Too long I was told that the spiritual path is dry and intellectual. That wisdom is cold. But I have seen with my own eyes that in the hands of great masters, wisdom is warm and full of humor.

– Ajahn Brahm, “In Brief”


Turning Turmoil into Clarity

In Vajrayana practice, negative and positive emotions, broken down into five types, are two sides of the same coin; when purified, negative emotions transform into their enlightened form. Karla Jackson-Brewer shows us how to nourish Tibetan Buddhism’s empowered feminine principle to put this transformation into effect.

Spring 2022

Tricycle’s latest issue looks at different aspects of engaged Buddhism and offers teachings on the great matter of death and dying. In “The Zen of Therapy,” psychotherapist Mark Epstein explores the intersection of dharma and therapy. In “Drips on a Rock,” Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, discusses how her Buddhist practice informs the fight against gun violence. In “Where the Buddhist Chaplains Are,” translator, teacher, and chaplain Pamela Gayle White looks at the role Buddhists chaplains play in a largely Christian profession. Other features include an interview with an expert on bomori, the temple wives of Japanese Shin Buddhism; poems from the 13th-century Zen master Dogen; and an essay from Zen teacher Susan Moon on how the death of a friend can be an alarm bell to practice.
