Having taught formal retreats since 1986, my current interest is in supporting individuals and groups in integrating and applying the teachings and insights in daily life, and working with small groups in the exploration of the dharma for liberation of mind and heart. My talks draw on the traditional teachings and their pointing to liberation here and now.
An exploration of what metta means, why we begin with self, and the relationship between the three aspects of metta: self, others and all beings. Includes real life examples of the power of metta to transform self and others.
How can the teachings be applied in daily life? The Eightfold Path provides an easily applied guide to bringing the dharma alive. This talk emphasizes the ethical application of the Path and how it impacts our lives in many ways.
