Meditation: Living Presence - Experiencing Aliveness and Openheartedness

Meditation: Living Presence - Experiencing Aliveness and Openheartedness

The pathway to experiencing full aliveness and openheartedness is by awakening awareness throughout the body. This meditation begins by establishing a rhythmic inflow and outflow of the breath, in order to calm and collect the mind. Then continuing with the conscious breathing, we are guided through the body – bringing attention to sensations and space. This attention becomes a very vibrant living presence, and we end by experiencing that living presence as a natural openheartedness that includes all of life.

Homecoming to Loving Awareness (Retreat talk)

Homecoming to Loving Awareness (Retreat talk)

We have strong conditioning to identify as a separate self, and to feel all the fears and attachments that arise from not realizing our true belonging. This talk includes teachings and several experiential reflections that help us wake up from the trance of separation. As we grow familiar with the awareness and love that is our shared true nature, we naturally live from that loving, and experience a growing freedom and joy.

Cherishing Each Other: A Conversation with Tara Brach and Father Gregory Boyle

Cherishing Each Other: A Conversation with Tara Brach and Father Gregory Boyle

Many are familiar with the Dali Lama’s words “My religion is kindness.” In this conversation you will sense the gritty and real way that we struggling humans can trust our unshakeable goodness and find a path of loving into healing.
