Meditation: Letting Life Live Through You

Facing Fear (Part 1) - Awakening Your Fearless Heart

Fear is a natural and universal part of our incarnation, and, when it goes on overdrive, we get imprisoned in the suffering of separation. These two talks explore how the RAIN meditation can help us face fear, and discover the boundless loving awareness that includes but is not contracted by currents of fear.

Embodied Presence (Part 2) - Planting our Roots in the Universe - Working with Pain

In describing our human predicament and dis-ease, D.H. Lawrence says we are like a great tree with our roots in the air. We need to replant ourselves—in our bodies, hearts and spirit. These two talks are guides to replanting ourselves. In Part 1, we explore how we are so often dissociated from the life of our body, and the pathways home. Part 2 looks at the challenges of pain, fear and trauma, and how we can gradually and skillfully reconnect with a wholeness of being.

Meditation: A Listening Presence

Meditation: A Listening Presence

Being Truthful - How Honesty Nourishes Love

The grounds of happiness, loving relationships and a just and flourishing society is honesty. Yet our current times are characterized by a plethora of deception – both societally, and often in our personal lives. This talk examines the deep conditioning we have to deceive others, and to avoid facing and acknowledging our own vulnerability. We explore how we can commit ourselves to deepening truth telling, thus creating a climate of integrity and trust that can lead to a more compassionate world.
