2022-07-28 Self-Care for Parents Dharma Talk (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 50:04
Diana Winston
Most parents are exhausted, over-committed, guilty, and burnt out. This talk explores how to increase our capacity for self-care using principles of the dharma. We explore the challenging voices that prevent us from being self-compassionate, and how we can work with them. We then talk about how to increase "outer self-care" -- practical things parents can do, and then "inner self care"-- increasing joy as a radical act and finding a depth of well-being no matter what is happening in life.

2022-07-27 Meditation: Befriending and Opening to Life 28:56
Tara Brach
This meditation establishes a gentle and caring presence through bringing the image and felt sense of a smile to various domains in the body. We deepen the intention to befriend and relax with whatever arises moment-to-moment, letting life be just as it is. We offer a brief lovingkindness reflection, sensing our heart and mind, and offering whatever wish most resonates to ourselves and others.

2022-07-27 Awakening from the Landlocked Self 53:04
Tara Brach
The Buddha taught that our suffering arises from forgetting who we are. This talk explores the trance of identifying as Somebody, and the compassionate witnessing that allows us to discover the freedom of our natural being.
