This talk explores the nature of fear and how it can be countered by the development of the heart. The spacious heart, trained in kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity, supports us in all circumstances.
We suffer when we forget who we are and get caught in a limited sense of self. This talk explores how we become identified with a sliver of what we are, and the pathway to remembering our wholeness. When we know we're the ocean, we are free to relate to the waves with respect, compassion and love.
We continue to focus on perspectives and practices to help us practice skillfully with those who seem difficult or "enemies." We give attention to further practices and some of the subtleties and complexities.
