Leela says: “Over the years my interest in awakening has be reformulated as how to be a real human being. In this session I invite you to explore, with me, the possibility of being grounded in the natural goodness of being. We will inquire how to live a full life from the ground of presence, and being yourself in peace with others.
A human life infused with natural beauty, a fulfilling life, means to develop a taste for certain values; a taste for truth, dignity, depth and simply being. These qualities are present all the time, you don’t have to achieve them, you just need to appreciate them and orient yourself towards them so that you allow yourself the time and opportunity for them to emerge.”
The poem Leela reads out is “Having loved enough” by Mark Nepo.
