2013-01-01 A New Year's Day of Practice: Talk and Guided Visualization 31:07
For "A New Year's Day of Practice: Resting and Re-Visioning," this talk in the afternoon pointed to ways that our practice can work with the three aspects of time: with training in present-centeredness, with studying and eventually letting go of the negative patterns from the past, and with aspiring in the future (in this New Year) to develop in ways that are helpful for both the personal and universal dimensions of awakening. A guided visualization helps us particularly with letting go and being in touch with what calls us from our depths for the next period of time.
