I try to convey that the wisdom and compassion we are looking for is already inside of us. I see practice as learning how to purify our mind and heart so we can hear the Buddha inside. In doing so, we naturally embody the dharma and help awaken that understanding and love in others we meet.

2011-06-02 Atammayatta: The Last Word and Final Sword of Buddhism 49:19
The Buddhist concept of Atammayata or "unconcoctibility" literally means "not made of that." The revered 20th Century master Ajahn Buddhadasa called this principle, "the last word and final sword of Buddhism."

2011-05-19 Embodying Passion Through Expression 53:52
There is a certain aliveness that comes when we speak honestly in a vulnerable, yet clear communication. It aligns us with our truth and we become authentic and wisely powerful. But it's often not easy to do that. I've based this talk on my son Adam's final thesis from Naropa University where he recently graduated with a B.A. in somatic and contemplative psychology. I was quite impressed and moved by it. It made me think. I wanted to share it as we explore Wise Speech together.
