In today’s world where we are awash in information and commercialism, torn between science and religion, held hostage by technology and ideology, what does spiritual practice look like?

In his 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva, the 14th century teacher Tokme Zangpo describes the path of awakening from initial motivation to the union of compassion and emptiness.

Drawing on his own translation and commentary, Ken focuses on four themes: the practice of taking and sending, how to meet adversity, the six perfections and how to live awake.
