#113 Skillfully Moving Through Change, Loss & Disruption with Kaira Jewel Lingo

A colleague recommended Kaira Jewel Lingo’s book to me earlier this year: We Were Made for These Times: Skillfully Moving through Change, Loss and Disruption, and I have been wanting to have her on the podcast for a while to explore her work with meditation, Buddhism & social justice.

Kaira Jewel is a dharma teacher who spent 15 years as a monastic in Thich Nhat Hanh’s Plum Village. Today we speak about what led her to step away from monastic life– and what that tumultuous transition was like, ways she integrates the dharma and social justice, things she misses most about monastic life, how to work with strong emotions and the uncertainty of the unknown, and what’s next on her horizon.

Kaira has a strong, gentle, clear presence, and I hope what we speak about today is of benefit to you.
