Mud and Radiance: a Whole Life Individual and Relational Detox Program

With Gregory Kramer recorded on January 19, 2020.

Found our teachings useful? Help us continue our work and support your teachers with a donation. Here’s how.

The world is on fire, internally and externally; we can no longer look away, but in order to deal with it we need to be awake.The mind is often muddy, but it is also radiant at the same time.The asava (intoxicants) keep us in the hazy state, but there is a detox program of relinquishment, effacement, and wisdom. Detoxing, and recognizing radiance, is powerful both individually and relationally. Together, we can find a whole life path. Join Gregory to explore how we might pursue this path.

    Daily Meditation Recordings, with Leela Sarti – Week of March 7, 2022

    This week’s theme is “Nurturing a Long View and Living Now”. It takes a lot of heart and presence to live a satisfying and meaningful life. Our inner patterns of resistance and reactivity often make us short sighted and contracted, and yet we have the potential to live from a timeless presence and embody beautiful human qualities such as wisdom, care, passion and originality. How can you make your time on earth something beautiful to behold? How can you live now with zest, courage, and love? How can you be a good ancestor for the ones that will live 100,000 years from now?

    Daily Meditation Recordings, with Zohar Lavie – Week of June 3, 2024

    This week’s topic is “Letting Go, Cultivating Deep Peace”. The Buddha’s teachings offer a profoundly pragmatic, compassionate and wise response to the human condition. During this week we will explore the art of pausing, looking deeply into our own lived experience and letting go of clinging, as foundations for developing a peaceful heart. This supports the possibilities for both our own well-being, as well as peace in the external world.
