Dear friends,
 
In the last talk of the recent Wake Up retreat for young people, Sister Thuan Nghiem enourages retreatants to invest in their spiritual wealth.  In our modern world, young people are prepared in school to seek career success and material wealth. Our sister invites retreatants to seek a balance between spiritual and material wealth.  From simply returning to our breath to taking the opportunity of the Five-Year program, there are many ways to start our spiritual future now.
 
Lastly, the Dharmacast team would like to invite you to participate in our new project,Summer Love Letters.  The monastics have dedicated their lives to sharing the Dharma with you and it nourishes their practice to hear how their dedication has touched your life.  If a sharing on the podcast has touched you deeply, please write a love letter, a love note, or even just a love sentence to the monastics at Deer Park.  Send it to the Dharmacast and throughout the summer, we hope to share your love letter on the air to nourish the monastics at Deer Park and inspire other listeners in the worldwide Dharmacast sangha.

Dear friends,
 
Today we share the second half of a talk given by Brother Man Tue before the Five Mindfulness Trainings ceremony at Deer Park.  Our brother focuses on how our senses play an integral role in the Fourth and Fifth Mindfulness Trainings.  He encourages us to place our mindfulness between our senses and ourselves, as a way to protect us from fear, craving and anger.  May you walk your path this week protected and free.

Dear Friends,
 
Today we share the dharma talk given by Brother Man Tue at Deer Park Monastery two weeks ago.  He shares his experience of finding joy in mindfulness as a way to take refuge. When world events or events at home cause us suffering, we can nourish our own joy as a way to promote peace in the people around us and in the world.

Dear friends,
 
This week we share a talk given by Sister Tinh Nghiem and translated by Sister Mat Nghiem.  Our sister shares the Dharma through two stories, both about the dynamics of relationships.  Her stories help us understand that we must be mindful of how we care for our loved ones and be open to the way that they care for us.
