Marcia Rose's Dharma Talks

I find teaching to be a very deep and powerful "no self" practice. When I connect with others during Dharma talks--in the intimacy of small groups, and while holding meditation practice interviews--I am continually reminded to know, and be, in a place of clarity, spaciousness and immediate presence. Being able to offer students such a place of connection is my greatest pleasure and inspiration, as well as the most appreciated challenge in my teaching practice.

What are the seeds that bring you to practice? What moves and inspires you towards practicing…and what along the way of your practice keeps urging you towards sustaining & deepening in your practice? Samvega is the movement of the heart/an inner response…both within our formal meditation practice as well as outside of our formal practice times.
