Our dedication to not pushing anyone--or any part of ourselves--out of our hearts, serves the healing of our world. This talk includes a short guided meditation on opening to our human vulnerability and forgiving another person.
The Buddha gives 6 places for the mind to dwell, 6 protections for our practice: Buddha, Dharma, Sangha, our virtue, our generosity and the devas. This talk explores how we can use them in our everyday lives.
A core part of Dharma practice is bringing to peace our mental construction, the talk discusses this in context of three aspects of the present experience: what is happening, our relationship to what is happening, and the subject who experiences all of this.
