Overcoming biases through compassion
The above recording includes questions only for the weekly contemplations from the Capstone entitled "Overcoming Biases through Compassion"
The recording below has basic meditation instructions along with the weekly contemplation questions.
This third recording includes the baseline questions before starting the practices suggested in the paper.
The recordings above are referenced in my Capstone project, "Overcoming Biases through Compassion" which was done for the Buddhist Chaplaincy Training at Upaya Zen Center. I have also included a written list of the questions below as well. If we read them before doing the weekly practice there is another input through the sense doors to help with the investigations. Listening, reading and writing give us three areas for which to experience these contemplations. The idea is to use these to uncover what is hidden. We know our explicit bias, but the implicit biases that we all hold take an extra effort to uncover.
