2014-08-26 Awakening The Belly 53:30
  Leela Sarti
The gut is sometimes referred to as the second brain. It takes guts to live and practice in this beautiful, sweet, terrible and messy existence. The more we turn to life, open to life, the more our metabolisation of stored up past experiences accelerates. Full presence in belly, heart and head makes us more open to the Nothingness that is the deepest nature of reality. When we are natural in ourselves we know how to let go.

  Leela Sarti
The heart is the territory of our being where things are made personal. It is also the place were our most difficult personal issues are located. The awakened heart is a natural expression real openess, warm acceptance and the joy of being. A fierce, beating heart is needed in order to skillfully meet and transform shame and self-judgement. The fierce heart puts gentle pressure on all our defenses and structures, and when we melt a little, into the the authenticity of our heart, we become nourished but less demanding of life. The natural curiosity and peaceful simplicity of the heart emerges.

2014-08-24 Joy and Presence 56:27
  Leela Sarti
The fragmentation of life has a chance of ending when we drop into embodied presence. When our awareness is immediate and intimate with experience we can disentangle ourselves from inner stories, commentaries, concepts, and contracted ideas. The most basic function of the personality is the reduction and the restriction of awareness, but through our own practice we free and expand awareness and learn that it can be a transformative experience to simply pause instead of immediatly filling up the space. When we are open to the immediacy of life, even when it is difficult, the heart responds with kindness, equanimity and joy.
