  Leela Sarti
This talk explores how the heart can awaken in mindful contact with the fundamental aspects of life - anicca, anatta and dukkha. To embody the awakening heart we need to understand and end the harmful force of shame and self-judgement. When there is an emerging inner climate of kind and attuned presence, the heart awakens itself.

  Leela Sarti
This talk explores desire and craving; as a fuel for evolution, as the main cause of human suffering, and as the noble heart's intention and sacred wish to awaken. To fully embrace the second aspect of the eightfold path we need access to true strength and resolve.

2013-09-05 The Illusion of Self, Equanimity and Beyond the Abyss 53:01
  Leela Sarti
To ask 'who am I?' is not a theoretical or esoteric question, but a practical question to ask in the midst of life. A steadiness of awareness makes it possible to trace the process of identity in relationship to body, mind, our belief, our roles, our situations in life and beyond any sense of self. When we are less identified we become more spacious and easy going. The radiant heart quality of equanimity - upekka - is essential when it comes to loosening fixed identity and living a life that embraces form and emptiness in a natural and authentic way.
