Dharma Talks Access for Retreatants

Relaxed, Open, Awake

Dharma teachings invite us towards a wiser, calmer, and kinder alternative. We can compose and steady the mind through practice: gaining greater clarity and embodying greater care towards what is happening. We can encourage the heart to open from contraction: expanding the possibilities of a deeper more skilful response.

Exploring wisdom ways of looking to bring insight into our practice, where paying attention is the key. Seeing the inconstancy in all things opens the possibility for greater sensitivity. Seeing the rating of all things by the enjoyment or distress they might offer as just an opinion, rather than fact, opens the possibility of more ease and delight.
