Tuesday May 19th

Rick Hanson’s HEAL acronym:

Have a positive experience. Bring something to mind and really experience it.
Enrich it—stay with it for 10-20 seconds, feel it in the body, what does it feel like, let it become more intense
Absorb it—help it to anchor in your body, allow it to sink into every cell of your body, take root in you, let it really land in you
Link it to a negative experience (optional)—while having a positive experience in foreground allow negative experience in background to arise and be held/healed by the positive experience.

  • Awakening from fear.

    We need not avoid fear. Fear belongs to the illusion of a self that is separate from life. It is the byproduct of identifying with that illusion. Often, fear arises in the very moment that our awareness practices are bringing us closer to a direct experience of who we authentically are. For this reason, in…

    Faith: Cultivating an Undivided Life

How can we untangle this tangle? This talk will explore how practice helps liberate us from our views and opinions, and…
