Buddhist teacher and anthropologist Joan Halifax talked about the concept of a strong back and soft front (instead of the opposite) as the relationship between equanimity and compassion. Of strength and flexibility. Of being brave AND tender.
Brené Brown expounds on this in her teachings…
“The strong back is grounded in confidence and boundaries. The soft front is staying vulnerable and curious. The mark of a wild heart is living out the paradoxes in our lives and not giving into the either/or BS that reduces us. It is showing up in our vulnerability and our courage, and, above all else, being both fierce and kind.”
