Dear friends,

 
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
This week, we present insight from our monastic brothers and sisters at Deer Park Monastery on the art of suffering.  During a question and answer session, retreatants ask how to best practice with suffering in our families and at work. When difficulties manifest in the world around us, we can remember to take refuge in the Dharma, the sangha, and the Buddha nature in ourselves and others.
 
With our teacher still recovering in the hospital, we have the opportunity to deeply practice his teachings. The most recent official announcements on Thay's health can be found at plumvillage.org.

Dear friends,
 
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
Earlier this week, the worldwide sangha was informed that Thay is in the hospital. The monastic community has asked lay friends around the world to practice mindfulness, stability and peace to support our beloved teacher, remembering that we are all cells of the great sangha body that Thay has manifested in his lifetime. More information can be found via official announcements at plumvillage.org.
 
For the podcast today, we bring you a rich sharing from our monastics during a question and answer session at this year's General Retreat at Deer Park Monastery. A retreatant asks how to work with and transform strong sexual cravings. The monastics respond insightfully on how to practice, look deeply, and see clearly into the nature of sexual energy. With mindfulness and equanimity, everything is possible.

Happy Friday to you! Another week for exploring our podcast archives.http://deerpark.libsyn.com/healing-in-our-relationships

We can learn so much from our lay teachers and fellow practitioners. In this Q&A session from a couples retreat last year, three lay teachers help us understand how to heal ourselves and our relationships. 

I've been going through some transitions (moving and new job) but our team will have a new podcast out to you next Friday. Stay tuned!

Dear friends,
 
To continue last week's sharing on Beginning Anew, today we offer a sharing by two lay friends and long-time practitioners.  As life partners, they share their experience with Beginning Anew and demonstrate how they practice it. We hope this wonderful gift from them encourages you to try it with your loved ones, your sangha, and yourself.

Dear friends,
 
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
Today, we offer the second half of Brother Phap Hai's dharma talk from this year's General Retreat.  He shares that despite a recent study showing that most people do not want to sit alone with their thoughts, as practitioners, we sit and look deeply into our thoughts quite frequently. Rather than choosing to react, we can choose this moment to see what this person, or this situation, is teaching us. Rather than trying to transcend, we can choose to accept and transform.

Dear friends,
 
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
This week, we share the first half of the dharma talk given by Brother Phap Hai at this years General Retreat.  Our brother invites us to return to ourselves to truly experience the Dharma in the present moment. And in light of the recent ice bucket challenge trend, Brother Phap Hai takes it a step further and invites us to ask the hard questions: What is the work that we're here to do? And why aren't we doing it?

Dear friends,
 
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
This week, we continue to share Sister Kinh Nghiem's talk from the recent General Retreat at Deer Park Monastery.  Our sister begins with a favorite song of hers, called Cookie of Childhood.  Then, she shares with us stories from her monastic life that illustrate the joy of letting go, the happiness of living mindfully, and the importance of impermanence.

Dear friends,
 
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
This past Sunday at Deer Park Monastery, the annual general retreat closed with a lovely talk by Sister Kinh Nghiem.  She shares about the Four Immeasurable Minds, also known as the four elements of true love.  Then, she clearly connects them to the Four Mantras.  May this talk help you practice and cultivate true love in your life.
