New Dharma Talk by Lisa: Navigating the Gap While Going Back into The World

New Dharma Talk By Lisa: The Three Kinds of Happiness in Buddhism

New Dharma Talk by Lisa – No Self and The Sense Doors

“Because of emptiness, all things are possible.” – Nisargadata How do we live it, or get to know this teaching experientially in our lives? Especially as the energy begins to “tip forward” toward reopening, reconnecting in person and resuming some elements of what we think of as normal. This talk includes a guided compassion meditation at the end.

GPS and The Dharma Navigation System

Right now it may feel you’re in limbo, no fixed location. Perhaps a sense of optimism, yet also the push and pull of staying and going forward, no real directions that make sense. Like being lost and not having any way to navigate. But the dharma is the ultimate navigation system to help us reset and find our way.

New Dharma Talk by Lisa Ernst

We all need a little humor right now and the “cat lawyer” delivered. This is also a good time to review the classic teachings of the Anapanasati Sutra as a foundation for meditaiton, from basic mindfulness of breath to full awakening. This talk also includes a 10 minute guided metta meditation.

New Year’s Multi Day Retreat

2020 has proven to be one of the most challenging years in recent memory. Practicing together at the turn of the New Year will provide an extraordinary time for reflection and taking refuge in dharma and community. By taking time to pause and look into our hearts, we can better care for ourselves and those around us with loving attention and wise action. Through deep inquiry we can also clarify our direction for the New Year and beyond.

This home retreat is designed with schedule flexibility to accommodate home practice across time zones. For full information, schedule and registration, go here.

Radical Empathy and the Octopus (Intimate with all Things)

This talk explores how true empathy and compassion occur when we are able to put ourselves inside the skin of others. When we are truly in contact with suffering (including our own) genuine compassion is born in us. The talk concludes with a boundless radiation lovingkindness practice.
