We suffer when our words or actions arise from unconscious wants and fears. This talk explores how we can awaken from the habitual ways we cause harm to ourselves and others, and live from our natural intelligence and tender warmth.
We review briefly our previous practices and investigations of body practices in the last three weeks. We then focus on the body's connection with mind and heart, how we practice individually with each of them, how we explore the dynamic relationship of body, mind, heart. We end by focusing on heart practices for our bodies and those of others, and on opening to the further mysteries of bodies.
We often understand our habits and patterns as having many complex layers, and think we need to dive into the midst of the layers in order to "really" understand the pattern. This talk explores a gentle investigation of what is obvious in our experience, which allows a natural, organic understanding to emerge.
