2012-03-10 Rest in Natural Being 55:15
  Leela Sarti
Deeply opening to the impact of the characteristics of human existence; anicca, anatta and dukkha, supports us to grow in wisdom and brings intimacy and aliveness to our being. From the silence of being flows the essential radiant qualities of mind and heart; love, compassion, joy and equanimity. Our unfolding is held and nurtured by the supporting containers of awakening practice; sila, samadhi and panna.

  Leela Sarti
"There is a cry deeper than all sounds whose serrated edges cut the heart as we break open, to the place inside which is unbreakable and whole, while learning to sing" - Rashani There is an illness in being somebody and and illness in being nobody.

  Tara Brach
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.
