There’s a lot going on in the world. Often, it can feel impossible to change: climate change, bullying, anxiety, racism, poverty and the list goes on. What do you do when you feel like the world is just too messed up to change? Where do you find courage or hope? In this episode, we speak with Congressperson Hank Johnson and examine what Buddhism says about changing the world.
Human beings have a complicated relationship with money. It’s often the focus of our greed, jealousy or misery.

On this episode, we explore what Buddhism says about desire, wealth and attachment. Hint: it has a lot to do with recognizing and transforming ourselves.
