Dear friends,
 
This week we share the talk given by Sister Trung Chinh on Vesak Day, the day of the Buddha's birth. In sharing about the baby Buddha's birth in India and a baby girl's birth in Vietnam, our sister gives insight into the significance of all moments.

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.

Dear friends,
 
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma Flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
This week we offer a sharing by two lay friends and Order of Interbeing members, Heather Mann and Nomi Green.  As part of the Earth Holding theme weekend, they shared experiences from their lives as practitioners.  One story is set on the high seas and another on a windowsill at home.  Both bring us back to the inescapable truth of our connection with all beings on our Mother Earth.

Dear friends,
 
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma Flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
Today, we continue with the second half of a talk from guest speaker Michael Ciborski.  He shares his experiences living as monk at Plum Village and afterwards as a lay practitioner to the concept of the mind as a garden. Michael stresses the importance of tending our garden, to embrace and calm the emotions that arise in us. Without careful tending, our unwholesome seeds become tangled thickets and the stories they weave compelling.  But like a mother to a small child, we can hold the feeling close and whisper, "This is not storytime" and hold them instead.

Dear friends,
 
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma Flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
Today, we are lucky to share a talk from a special, guest speaker at Deer Park, Michael Ciborski.  Michael lived as a monk at Plum Village for seven years and is now is a lay practitioner with a mindfulness center, called Morning Sun, in New Hampshire. Michael suggests that rather than have life happen *to* us, we can fully participate in our lives by coming home through the Four Establishments of Mindfulness. This teaching of the Buddha, as explained by our brother, becomes a clear path to a place of mindful refuge.
