Compassion Towards All: Moving toward a Plant Based Diet (2019-05-15)

Compassion Towards All: Moving toward a Plant Based Diet (2019-05-15) - For most of human history it?s been ?normal? to eat non-human animals. This is now changing. We are awakening to the massive suffering of the billions of animals killed each day for food, the horrors of the animal-food industry, and the impact it has on climate change (second only to fossil fuels.) In this short talk Tara shares her personal story of transitioning to a vegan diet, and invites listeners to investigate, without judgment, their own choices in this domain. (note: given at a special class on "Loving Life with a Plant-Based Diet." Tara was joined by guest speakers, Mark Tercek and Brenda Sanders, and hosted by Jonathan Foust. Full video available at Tara's Facebook page and soon at IMCW.org.)

Conscious Prayer ? Finding Refuge in Loving Awareness (retreat talk)

Conscious Prayer ? Finding Refuge in Loving Awareness (retreat talk) - Prayer is a communing with our enlarged being. This talk examines less conscious forms of prayer, and how we can evolve the power of our prayers by opening into the depth of our longing, and reaching toward our true belonging (given at the 2016 IMCW Spring Retreat).

How I yearn to belong to something, to be contained in an all-embracing mind that sees me as a single thing.
And I yearn to be held in the great hands of your heart.
Oh let them take me now.
Into your hands I place these fragments, my life, and you my God spend them however you want.
~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Meditation: Loving This Life ? Happiness - a Metta Practice

Meditation: Loving This Life ? Happiness - a Metta Practice - This meditation turns us toward naturally arising happiness with the image of a smile, welcoming the aliveness and presence of each moment with the spirit of ?yes? and then closes with a brief lovingkindness practice. NOTE: a favorite retreat meditation from the archives.

Lama Gendun Rinpoche writes, ?Happiness cannot be found through great effort and willpower, but it is already there, in relaxation and letting go.?

Part 2 - Forgiveness: Releasing Ourselves and Others from Aversive Blame (2019-05-01)

Forgiveness: Releasing Ourselves and Others from Aversive Blame ? Part 2 (2019-05-01) - Rumi invites us to find the barriers we?ve erected against love, and a universal one is blame. These three talks are an invitation to relax those barriers, and to open our hearts to our inner life and to all beings. Part I focuses on chronic self-judgment; Part II on the places of deep self-condemnation, and Part III on where we have locked into anger, blame or hatred of others. Each includes guided reflections that can support us in directly awakening beyond the confining thoughts and feelings of blame.

Equanimity: A Heart That is Ready for Anything

Equanimity: A Heart That is Ready for Anything (a favorite from the 2014 archives) - Equanimity is the quality of presence that is open, balanced and non-reactive. As this talk explores, when equanimity is lacking, we become easily lost in trance, identified as a defended and controlling egoic self. When present, the solidity and constriction of egoic self dissolves, and our heart is free to respond to life with love, compassion, forgiveness and joy. Note: includes "Duck Meditation" and bricklayer stories.

Meditation: Sea of Loving Presence (2019-04-17)

Meditation: Sea of Loving Presence (2019-04-17) - In this meditation we begin with the image and felt sense of a smile to arouse an atmosphere of care, and allow that caring presence to fill our body and the entire field of awareness. We then open to the changing experience of breath, sensations, feelings sound and thoughts. By resting in a wakeful and open heartspace, we can include all the passing waves with ease and tenderness.

Beyond the Controlling Self - Part 2 (2019-04-10)

Beyond the Controlling Self - Part 2 (2019-04-10) - It?s natural that we do what we can to ward off danger and further ourselves. While our control strategies - such as aggression, judging, planning, seeking approval, pretending - have a developmental role, they are not a recipe for happiness, intimacy and freedom. An essential part of our evolution is to recognize when we are over-managing our lives, and learn to let go of the controls. These talks explore how we can release the grip of the over-controller, and the profound awakening of our hearts and minds that is possible in the shift from doing to being.

Meditation: Letting Life Be (2019-04-10)

Meditation: Letting Life Be (2019-04-10) - This meditation establishes an atmosphere of loving kindness with the ?smile?; relaxes and awakens through the body; and guides us into a spacious presence. We then rest in that presence, letting go of any controlling, and simply allow life to be as it is. It?s in ?letting be? that we come home to the luminosity and tenderness of natural awareness. We close with a verse from Mary Oliver...

The Four Remembrances (2019-03-27)

The Four Remembrances (2019-03-27) - When we attune to the reality of impermanence and death, we remember what most matters to us. But in daily life we can lose precious swaths of time in a reactive trance, on our way somewhere else, and lost in problem solving, judgment and worry. This talk reflects on four remembrances or practices - Pausing, Yes to life, Turning toward love, and Resting in awareness - that help us awaken from trance and live true to the loving presence that is our essence.

Meditation: Being Here (with OMs) (2019-03-20)

Meditation: Being Here (with OMs) (2019-03-20) - We miss many moments of this precious life drifting in a virtual thought world. This meditation helps us collect and calm ourselves with the breath; relax through our bodies; and then include the changing dance of  sounds, sensations and feeling in open awareness. Our practice is to recognize the quality of Hereness, and when we drift, return again to this open presence, relaxing with the changing flow of life.

Meditation: Entering Heartspace with the ?Smile-Down? (2019-03-13)

Meditation: Entering Heartspace with the ?Smile-Down? - The practice of visualizing and feeling a smile spreading through the body helps us access the natural tenderness and openness of our being. This meditation guides us in the smile-down, and then invites a full opening and resting in openhearted presence. We close by bringing that awake heart to an area of difficulty in our life.

The Sacred Art of Listening

The Sacred Art of Listening - Just as presence is the heart of meditation, so deep listening is at the center of all conscious, loving relationships. This talk explores how our wants and fears block listening, ways we can deepen our capacity for listening, and the healing that unfolds when we truly feel heard by another (a special talk from the archives).

Meditation: Listening to Life

Meditation: Listening to Life - The attitude of meditation is one of engaged listening ? a relaxed, receptive yet intimate attention. This meditation explores how we can listen to sounds, listen to and feel sensations, and then relax back into the ocean of awareness that includes and perceives the changing waves. In this relaxing back, we realize the peace and freedom of inhabiting our wholeness and essence (from the archives).

Spiritual Reparenting

Spiritual Reparenting (a favorite from the archives) - When we are not sufficiently nurtured in childhood, we are inclined toward anxiety, depression, addiction and other forms of suffering. In a deep way, we do not feel at home with others. We are disconnected from our own body, heart and spirit.

This talk explores how meditation offers ?spiritual reparenting? as we learn to bring interest, understanding and love to our own inner vulnerability. This process of healing extends to our relationships with others and our larger society ? by reaching out to widening circles with interest and care, we bring increasing harmony and peace to our world.

?That question: Where does it hurt? We need to address it to everyone, if we really want to understand each other.? Ruby Sales

Meditation: Relaxing Back into Living Presence

Meditation: Relaxing Back into Living Presence - When we are lost in thoughts our mind contracts, our body tightens and we disconnect from true openheartedness. The pathway home is through ?relaxing back? and reopening our attention to our senses, relaxing through our body, and gently contacting the felt sense in our heart. By repeatedly relaxing back, we become increasingly familiar with the vibrancy, tenderness and openness of true presence.

Earth's Crisis: On the Edge of the Roof (from the Archives) - NOTE: Due to the unusually windy and cold weather, we had to cancel class on January 30, 2019. Tara selected this talk from the archives for the podcast as especially appropriate.

This talk views the ecological dis-ease of our planet through the lens of our evolutionary unfolding. We explore the egoic trance that has precipitated the destruction of our environment, and the inner practices of presence that enable us to respond from love and wisdom.

Meditation: Collecting, Unifying and Opening the Mind (a favorite from the archives) - We begin with a listening attention, relaxing open, letting sounds wash through. Scanning through and feeling the aliveness of the body, listening to the breath. Not pushing away anything - a very open and relaxed, receptive attention. Sensing what's happening in this present moment. Closing by sensing all in the foreground and in the background - that alert inner stillness, that light of awareness, that which is our deepest, formless nature.

Meditation: Living Loving Awareness

Meditation: Living Loving Awareness (2019-01-23) - By bringing our full attention to the aliveness in the body, we can open to the experience of interior space and the space that includes all sensations and sounds. This then allows us to perceive continuous space filled with the light of awareness. This meditation attunes us to these dimensions of awareness: continuous open space, heart space and full aliveness. We end with a Zen poem that invites us to rest in this living, loving awareness, and know it as home.

Realizing Your Deepest Intention (2019-01-16)

Realizing Your Deepest Intention (2019-01-16) - The Buddha taught that this whole life - including our thoughts, feelings and actions - arise from the tip of intention. While our intentions are usually marbled with wanting and fear, when intention comes into the light of consciousness, it unfolds into its most pure essence. This talk explores ways that when we are stuck in reactivity, we can become aware of intention, and find our way to the aspiration that expresses our most awake and loving heart.

Meditation: Letting Go?Letting Be (2019-01-09)

Meditation: Letting Go?Letting Be (2019-01-09) - This guided meditation invites us to imagine a clenched fist relaxing open, and explores this in releasing contractions in the body as well as the grip of thoughts. When we deeply let go and let be, our energy flows freely. We reconnect with our natural aliveness, love and awareness.

Let go of what has passed.
Let go of what may come.
Let go of what is happening now.
Don?t try to figure anything out.
Don?t try to make anything happen.
Relax, right now, and rest.

Transforming Two Fears: FOF and FOMO

Transforming Two Fears: FOF and FOMO - There are two common fears that can block us from our full potential ? fear of failure (FOF), and fear of missing out (FOMO). This talk explores how to meet these fears with mindful presence, and discover within them the essence energies of loving awareness and full aliveness (a favorite from the archives).

Note ? This talk is dedicated to Tim Ferriss, who turned me on to the phrase FOMO. Tim exemplifies the creative aliveness of FOMO energy when it?s living through someone who?s dedicated to being awake, caring and real.

NOTE: This meditation is a favorite from the archives - from the end of the talk, ?Bodhichitta ? The Awakened Heart ? Part 2.?

?To love someone is to learn the song in their heart and sing it to them when they have forgotten.? Arne Garborg

Meditation: Aware and Alive (2018-12-12)

Meditation: Aware and Alive (2018-12-12) - Just as a cup is full with water, this body is filled with awareness. As we sense the awareness inside the body, and the awareness that listens to sounds beyond the body, we discover the continuous space of awareness that includes, and gives rise to this entire creation. Opening in this way allows for homecoming to wholeness and freedom.
