Dear friends, 

This week we share with you the first part of Sister Dang Nghiem's talk from the Miracle of Mindfulness retreat. For the children, our sister gives a teaching on patterns in nature and in our families. Then with the adults, she illuminates the ordinary nature of mindfulness in our everyday lives. The interbeing of all things comes to light as she prepares to discuss the Buddha's teaching on awareness of breath.

Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.

Dear friends, 
 
 
This week we continue the orientation sharing at the recent retreat. Sister Tang Nghiem tells the story of the Buddha's first teaching with children when they named the Path of Awareness. The way we enjoy our breath, our silence, our steps and our sitting meditation are all steps on the path. May you find peace and many friends along the way. 
 
Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.

Dear friends, 
 
This week we share with you the first half of the retreat orientation with Brother Pháp Trạc. He invites us to listen to the bell, let go of our worries and eat with mindfulness. Whether you were at the retreat or were halfway around the world, allow yourself to begin your own retreat, wherever you are.

Dear friends,

Today we continue a talk given by Sister Hang Nghiem. She offers The Four Diligences as a way to practice taking care of the seeds in garden of our mind. So often we are concerned with the seeds and gardens of others; our sister reminds us to take time to recognize and tend to our own seeds. 

 
Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.

Dear friends,
 
Today we share a talk given by Sister Hang Nghiem. She offers practical advice on how to practice -- by closing our eyes a little bit. In a literal sense, when we can do this during sitting meditation and when we have difficult emotions, but also figuratively when we are going about our daily lives. May we recognize our limits and take good care of ourselves. 
 
Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.

Dear friends,
 
Today we continue a series of talks by Brother Phap Hai on The Eight Verses of Mind Training. Our brother invites us to return to the earth of our practice with the second and third verses:
 
"Whenever I interact with anyone, may I consider myself as lower and from the depths of my heart may I consider the other person as a treasure."
 
"In everything I do, may I look deeply into my mind and as soon as I recognize a mistaken view that endangers myself or others, may I practice diligently to embrace and to transform it."
 
Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.

Dear friends,
 
Today we share a talk by Brother Phap Hai. He shares insights on our culture of consumerism and discusses how it applies to our practice. Over our time as a practitioner, we may have accumulated some layers of practice. Our brother encourages us to let go of these layers, these formalities and return to the essence of our practice. 
 
Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply. 
 
(If you prefer the full 1-hr talk, it is available here.)

Dear friends,
 
Today we continue Brother Phap Hai's talk from Deer Park Monastery. He introduces The Eight Verses of Mind Training to help us practice and transform. Over the course of the next few months, our brother will offer all the eight verses for us. Today, the first verse: "May I always cherish all sentient beings and consider that compared to a wish-fulfilling jewel, they are far superior for liberating my heart."
 
Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.
