Dear Friends,
Sometimes in life, we have our hearts set on one thing or one person, only to receive something or someone completely different.  The miracle of mindfulness is, in that moment, to see our expectations and return joyfully to the here and now.  This week's podcast is just like that.  
Practitioners at Deer Park Monastery were expecting the Venerable to speak, but in his place, Sister Man Nghiem gave the dharma talk.  With her signature enthusiasm and wonder for life, our sister shares her unique perspective on the Four Nutriments, finding joy, and renewing our practice.  From volition to conciousness, and from potato chips to Star Wars, she fills the talk with richness while rooting it in our real lives.  
This Valentine's Day, we wish you the nourishing power of love -- for yourself and all those around you.
Remember, you can always find the Deer Park Dharmacast at, Facebook, iTunes, and Twitter.  Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.
