My experience in the undoing patriarchy group very much affirms that for me – that we come together to create a space where we can talk about how we harm, how we are harmed, share stories of brokenness. And the sharing of it reveals a wholeness there, a healing. And when that’s set in motion, compassion flowers out of that. Almost like it rushes into the space that’s created in that holding. It’s like just the act of allowing our full selves to come out enables us to meet others in a full way, completely. And then we act from there. Bodhisattvas help bodhisattvas become bodhisattva. It happens across time – like this koan from the 11th century- and then across space and within spaces like the sangha.
