Rabbi Sam Feinsmith
The overwhelming nature of
and social justice work can make us harden our hearts to avoid feeling vulnerable, approaching our work from a place of anger, frustration, and pain can lead to burnout, exhaustion, and more suffering. In this teaching, Sam offers a meditation for approaching this work from a place of compassion towards ourselves and those who have been marginalized and harmed rather than a place of anger toward those who have done the hurting. When we ground social justice in compassion and open-heartedness, we pave the way towards work that is transformative, meaningful, and sustainable.
