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.
 
Remember, you can always find the Deer Park Dharmacast at dpcast.net, on Facebook, iTunes, and Twitter. Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.
