2017-05-24 Meditation: Opening to the River of Aliveness 17:22
  Tara Brach
This meditation guides us to awaken to sensation using the image of a smile and scanning through the body. We then open to sound and to the entire changing flow of experience. When we connect with the changing flow of sensations, feelings and sounds, we also discover the formless awareness that is our Source… and home. “This river of sensation ceaselessly vibrating… tingling… flowing… let it live through you.” “Completely relax with this ever changing dance of sound and sensation.”

2017-05-24 The Reality of Change: Embracing this Living Dying World 53:02
  Tara Brach
“What is it that allows us to open our hearts to every moment of our life? It’s the remembrance that it’s passing and it’s precious.” Our true refuge is reality – only by opening to “things as they are” do we find true peace and freedom. This talk explores impermanence – a key feature of reality. We look at our habits of resisting change – including loss and death, the practices that awaken and open us, and the gifts of letting go into the ever-changing river of experience.
