Dear friends,
 
Today we share the the end of a question and response session a the recent Teen Retreat at Deer Park Monastery. The discussion between retreatants and monastics touches on the notions of activism, ultimate truth and interbeing. When we ask with open hearts and listen with a beginner's mind, we can better understand the nature of our ideas and concepts.

Dear friends,
 
This week we bring you the second in a series of questions and responses during the Teen Retreat at Deer Park Monastery. Participants offer their concerns to the monks and nuns about how to practice outside the monastery, how to forgive, and how to center our youth in mindfulness. By practicing deep listening, may the questions and responses be illuminating for our own practice.

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.

Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
This week we offer you a series of questions asked by lay friends at the recent People of Color Retreat at Deer Park Monastery. Our monastic brothers and sisters give guidance on how we can speak our truths from a place of compassion and authenticity.  And then, our sister shares on how the light of mindfulness can transform violence into a lotus of awakening.

Dear friends,
 
At the end of each retreat, lay friends are given the opportunity to ask questions from their heart to a panel of Deer Park monks and nuns. As the brothers and sisters answer the three questions presented today, we can learn from their way of living. From suffering to mindful consumption to even bacon cravings, we find that the monastics are more like us lay practitioners than we may have thought.

Dear Friends,
 
This week, we share the question and answer session from the Deer Park New Years retreat.  The questions asked by retreatants center around conflict in oneself and in the family.  In response, the monastics reflect on their own experiences and slowly, the flower petals of wisdom unfurl. The monastics' gentle words reveal that sometimes, the answer is time, patience, space, and acceptance.  And always, the answer comes from your question and from your heart.

Dear Friends,

When did you last listen to the children in your life?  Today we have a chance to listen to the children at Deer Park's New Years Retreat ask questions to the monastics.  Their questions about meditation practice, family life and school show us how perceptive and sensitive they are to the messages in the world around them.  We invite you to approach this podcast with an open heart, listening to hear the voices of the child in you and the children in your life.  May we embrace all our children to heal the generations before us and the generations to come.
