A Conversation Between Shanti Soule and Stephanie Sugars
Listen (29 min) Part 1
Listen (29 min) Part 2 (The program begins with this 16 min segment)
We listen in on the ultimate discussion. Two women, Shanti Soule and Stephanie Sugars, maneuvering the threshold of death.
Shanti Soule was a working class Buddhist teacher, cook and fierce defender of rights for all oppressed peoples. She was instrumental in beginning the East Bay Meditation Center, and, until the end, fighting for diversity in the dharma.
Stephanie Sugars is an esoteric Christian with a Buddhist meditation practice and a long time cancer survivor. She facilitates an on-line group of 200-350 people who live with Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome, a rare genetic disease.
Both women are lesbians. They share a love of meditation and nature.
Stephanie and Shanti are skating together right there — along the threshold, living on the edge of death, understanding each other and taking time to explain to us — mere disabled folks not dealing with imminent death — so we can understand too. In this densely packed program, philosophy and death intertwine.
