Leela Sarti
This talk explores the fixation of identity, and the isolating limitation of being an "I" and how, when we become less engaged in the constructed, defended and fabricated, the great way of practice opens up. As we align with reality of the three characteristics of existence, we sense a different belonging and the vibrant intimacy of living an embodied life.
