2009-02-18 The Divine Abodes: Compassion 1:17:49
  Tara Brach
Lovingkindness, compassion, joy and equinimity, are natural expressions of our awakened heart. In this series of four talks, we will examine what arouses these qualities of a wise heart. Each talk will include guided reflections. Compassion naturally arises as we allow ourselves to be touched by suffering--our own, those we know, all beings. As we discover our shared vulnerability, the pain of separation dissolves and our hearts open to widening circles of belonging.

  John Peacock
Please note that these talks are from a 4 week retreat for experienced meditators. The talks and meditations can be listened to in any order or individually, but as they progressively unfold different levels of understanding of Emptiness, they will probably be more fully understood and the practices more easily developed if taken in series

The journey of awakening is a shared journey. This talk shares some stories of our fellow traveler's going back to the Buddha sitting at the foot of the bodhi tree to present day teachers. Linking their lives with ours to help us find the fortitude and support we need to stay on the path.
