The Three Tenets: Not-Knowing, Bearing Witness and Taking Action serve as a catalyst for transformative engagement in the world. The Three Tenets support our ability to clearly see, work with, and respond to complex and deeply triggering concerns and issues. Through the practice of meditation, we come face to face with Not-Knowing, realizing the limitations of our fixed ideas and concepts. Out of this place of open encounter with life, our capacity to Bear Witness to the pain of the world emerges. As we hear the cries and sorrow of a land in tumult, we naturally Take Action to respond to the suffering we see and feel all around us.
