  La Sarmiento
Through taking refuge in our own buddha-nature, the teachings and practices of the Buddha, radical acceptance of life's unfolding, and supportive community, we can transform our limited views of ourselves and expand our capacity to awaken to what's real, to alleviate suffering, and to cultivate true happiness.

  Tara Brach
These two talks look at how we relate to change – especially the notable changes involving loss of relationships and our own body and mind. We examine our strategies for avoiding uncertainty and fear; the consequences of resisting reality; our refuges of presence and compassion in the face of grief; and the gifts of opening fully to the river of change.

2017-10-04 Meditation: Saying “Yes” to Life 16:30
  Tara Brach
This meditation guides us in relaxing through the body, then opening to the changing river of experience. By continually relaxing back and letting go into what is unfolding, we discover the natural vastness, wakefulness and vitality of our essential Being. The poet Danna Faulds writes: In the shared quiet, an invitation arises like a white dove lifting from a limb and taking flight. Come and live in truth. Take your place in the flow of grace. Draw aside the veil you thought would always separate your heart from love. All you ever longed for is before you in this moment, if you dare draw in a breath and whisper “yes.”
