Dear friends,
 
Today we share a talk given by Sister Truc Nghiem and translated by Sister Bach Nghiem. In the beginning, the monastics chant a poem written by Thay. Then our sister reflects upon our ability to stop and discover the inner Buddha within. She invites us to welcome all that has always been there.

Dear friends,
 
Today we share songs of appreciation for our loved ones.  At a recent Day of Mindfulness, Brother Phap Ho shares a song by an late friend of Deer Park Monastery, Dennis Howard, and then, two monastics perform the Vietnamese song written for Thay's poem, A Rose For Your Pocket, a tribute to mothers. May these songs stir gratitude in your heart.

Dear friends,
 
At a recent Day of Mindfulness, Brother Phap Ho shares how he spent his recent Lazy Days. These days are designated days of relaxation at the monastery when there is no schedule of practice for the monastics.  Our brother finds that with the freedom of Lazy Days come the opportunity to discover rich teachings. 
 
Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.

Dear friends,
 
Today we offer a sharing by Sister Man Nghiem and Sister Nho Nghiem at last year's teen retreat at Deer Park Monastery. In wonderfully clear language, they share their own refreshing experiences with the Beginning Anew practice taught by Thay. As teens or adults, we can all practice loving speech and deep listening for the benefit of everyone around us. 
 
Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.

Dear friends,
 
Today we share a talk by Sister Tuong Nghiem and translated by Sister Tinh Nghiem.  As a young monastic, our sister remembers that it was not easy for her to practice mindfulness in midst of difficulties. She shares conversations she had with Thay when she felt overwhelmed and her own insights into how we can stop, breathe, and see our difficulties clearly. It is not always easy; and that is ok. 
 
Also from the online sangha this week,we invite you to join an online, televised panel discussion about Sister D's new book, Mindfulness as Medicine.  I'll be talking with Jason Kim from Parallax Press and Nadia Coburn from Anchor Magazine.  You can write in questions for us live during the one-hour program, Tuesday at 9am Pacific. Or of course, watch it online later. To connect, go to bit.ly/sisterd.  We'll see you there!
 
Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.

Dear friends,
 
Today we share a talk by Brother Chinh Quang (aka Brother CQ) given at Deer Park Monastery. He reflects on his journey to become a monastic and the challenges he faced along the way. We all face difficulties on the path of practice.  In his sharing, our brother encourages us to be aware, with each step, that we have the opportunity to transform our volition and to change our direction.
 
Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.
